Mark Gibson

This week musical organisations in Taipei play host to Mark Gibson, professor of conducting at the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati, USA. Conductors in training know him as the latest contributor to the The Modern Conductor, a standard text for conductors in training that was originally authored by Elizabeth Green.
