What's in a Name?

Having grown up with a rather unfortunate name, Richard Cock has endless anecdotes of amusing variations on his name, as well as hilarious tidbits on other name errors he's come across in his life.


According to Richard, “Orchestral conductors work by an amalgam of psychology, magic and a storehouse of knowledge about music, people and how to get the best out of a collection of highly trained, highly individualistic, and highly strung people, all thrown together in the powder keg that is the orchestra.”


In this entertaining talk, Richard explores the world of the orchestral conductor, the good the bad and the ugly, and debunks a few myths along the way. This hour of fun and laughter will provide fascinating insights about the mystical art of conducting.


What's in a Name is an extremely funny, rather risque look at !  Adults only!
