Orchestrated arc game
Number of players
Six to eight (one conductor)
Something for each player to complain about, other than the conductor.
How it is Played
The conductor warms up the orchestra, then cue them in whatever order/combination he desires. When cued, a player complains about his/her assigned topic. The game usually ends with a performer "crescendoing" with a passionate outburst upon the conductor's cue.
Tips for Performance
- Make consistent eye contact with the conductor.
- If you have a good crescendo planned, let the conductor know via body language.
- Don't combine too much if you don't have a good ear for blending.
- Try to find cues for raising pitch, volume, pace, etc.
