The musician that is going to stand at the position must know exactly what to do; their role is among the most important; they need to guide the group through tuning and performances and create a connection between the orchestra and the conductor. They also notate bowing patterns for violins.
In addition to performing, he or she helps manage an orchestra. They assist the music director with hiring musicians and preparing their music, advise on artistic and business matters, and communicate with the conductor, section leaders, and individual performers to resolve issues and answer questions.
