A conductor is the leader of a musical ensemble, such as an orchestra. The most visible aspect of the conductor's job is leading the orchestra in public performance, keeping time and otherwise conveying his wishes to the musicians. More importantly, the modern conductor is the key creative figure in the orchestra, developing an artistic vision for the performance.
