When should a conductor not use a podium? When that conductor is over seven feet tall and well over 300 pounds!  (Some podiums have a weight limit of 350 pounds.)

Maestro Shaquille O’Neal was handed the baton by the diminutive Keith Lockhart for a rousing rendition of Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson and We Are The Champions by Queen.

How do you play a wind instrument when you’re laughing.
