What is the purpose of the conductor? Like all the musicians that are there playing are of the highest quality, so why do they need a conductor at the live performances? I get the part about the conductor at rehearsals.
For most concerts their part is small--all their work was completed as you said at rehearsel.
Now--for live performances like broadway plays, musicals, etc... things do not always run the same--someone forgets a line or is sick and a part gets cut--the conductor is critical in keeping the fresh changes going smoothly.
