Synopsis:

Jeannette Sorrell, told by the Juilliard School and the Cleveland Orchestra that no one will hire a woman conductor, forms her own Baroque orchestra, Apollo’s Fire, to immediate acclaim.  This is the first film that shows how a conductor converts the dots on a printed score into musical phrases she can hear, and how the musicians almost miraculously are able to transform her expressive gestures into an exciting performance.

Great story, great music.

Delves inside Jeannette Sorrell's journey as a conductor in a world dominated by men. And what is it that conductors actually do? Fascinating look at the detail -- preparing, rehearsing and escorting the musicians through the music at performance. Great Baroque music throughout.
