I'm new to tMP so this may have been covered before. Any good faux pas by MD's or bandmasters. One of our BM's once said " right everybody P together ". Same guy Bass player asks "How does this bit go?". After a short pause and working out the rhythm. " Bum titty, bum titty. bum bum." My good self as Songster ( choir ) conductor, having rehearsed Sops, Altos, tenors and basses separately. " Right Ladies and men put your parts together"!!!
