Todd Fiegel lives in Draper and has been professor of conducting at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, University of Montana, Idaho State University and Muskingum College, and he is the founding conductor of Eau Claire Chamber Orchestra. He is active as guest conductor and clinician throughout the United States and Canada, in which country he has conducted from westernmost Vancouver Island to the eastern coast of Newfoundland.
Dr. Fiegel is also a serious devotee of film music, lecturing frequently on the subject and preparing articles for publication. His thorough examination of Bernard Herrmann’s masterful score for The Day the Earth Stood Still was published in the most recent edition of The Journal of Film Music.
He frequently conducts concerts of film music as it accompanies live projection of the films. Recent performances include Bruce Broughton’s score for Silverado, Warner Brothers cartoons, and his own original score for Mack Sennett’s 1913 silent classic, Barney Oldfield’s Race for a Life, which he has conducted in almost two hundred performances. His Celluloid Music Show has been performed at five international conferences and has been invited to tour Wales next summer. Most recently it was performed with the Utah Premiere Brass in Provo.
Todd states, “I am honored and excited to have this wonderful opportunity to work with the Salt Lake Symphony.”
