Hodgson Wind Ensemble rehearses differently than a lot of other wind ensembles. Most musicians in an ensemble have just their individual part in front of them and the conductor has the “master” score. This seems a little silly. We project the score behind the conductor so all of the musicians see the big picture. It makes rehearsals more efficient and more engaging!
