That which follows represents a partial listing of some music and composers. The listing is by no means comprehensive, and in a large part, is simply representative of the selections which I have found to be successful and/or noteworthy over the years. Finding good and suitable literature is an ongoing challenge for each of us as conductors - and basically - all - is a "work in progress".
