CONDUCTOR

Sarah Weaver has been a contemporary conductor for over 20 years. She currently conducts the Sarah Weaver Ensemble and the NowNet Arts Ensemble. Weaver conducts all of her ensemble compositions and conducts compositions of collaborators especially in network arts. Originally trained in classical and jazz music conducting, her early conducting teachers included William Jastrow, John Stanley Ross, James Tapia, H. Robert Reynolds, and workshops with conductors such as Marin Alsop, Larry Rachleff, and Frederick Fennell. Professionally Weaver pursued the Soundpainting language of Walter Thompson as his associate and for her own works. Weaver then continued on into her current form of conducting that integrates classical and jazz music conducting, Soundpainting, original gestures for network arts settings, and original gestures for her compositions. Weaver is also involved with further research in technology-mediated conducting for future applications.
