"Rainer was great. There was loads of positive feedback."

Rainer Hersch is a seriously talented conductor, motivator and entertainer. He tackles the difficult questions head-on, like 'What do conductors actually do?'
In presentations and workshops, Rainer compares the role of orchestral conductor to that of a leader in any organisation. He or she needs to gain the trust and respect of the players to maintain authority. Instead of reacting to the music, or the players, he leads them - especially through moments of change. And, as the only person who has the full musical score (ie all the facts), he has to support each individual, encourage them to listen to one another and inspire them perform as a single, harmonious unit.
In cabaret, Rainer is a self-styled classical music hooligan. Whether performing solo or accompanied by a gifted but slightly eccentric orchestra, he takes the audience on a hilarious musical odyssey. Along the way he demolishes myths and lampoons such greats as the William Tell Overture and Dvorak's New World Symphony.
The show climaxes with a rendition of Carmina Burana, known to the cognoscenti as one of the greatest advertising tunes of all time. Rainer encourages the audience to join in, singing complete gibberish at the top of their voices. This results in a sound remarkably close to the original.
Orchestral performances can include a participative element, in which three carefully selected audience members are invited onto the podium to try their hand conducting instantly recognisable tunes - usually with unrecognisable results.
