Conducting an orchestra

Among the instrument groups and within each group of instruments, there is a generally accepted hierarchy. Every instrumental group (or section) has a principal who is generally responsible for leading the group and playing orchestral solos. The violins are divided into two groups, first violin and second violin, with the second violins playing in lower registers than the first violins, playing an accompaniment part, or harmonizing the melody played by the first violins. The principal first violin is called the concertmaster (or "leader" in the UK) and is not only considered the leader of the string section, but the second-in-command of the entire orchestra, behind only the conductor . The concertmaster leads the pre-concert tuning and handles musical aspects of orchestra management, such as determining the bowings for the violins or for all of the string section. The concertmaster usually sits to the conductor's left, closest to the audience. There is also a principal second violin, a principal viola, a principal cello and a principal bass.

The principal trombone is considered the leader of the low brass section, while the principal trumpet is generally considered the leader of the entire brass section. While the oboe often provides the tuning note for the orchestra (due to 300-year-old convention), no principal is the leader of the woodwind section though in woodwind ensembles, often the flute is leader. [8] Instead, each principal confers with the others as equals in the case of musical differences of opinion. Most sections also have an assistant principal (or co-principal or associate principal), or in the case of the first violins, an assistant concertmaster, who often plays a tutti part in addition to replacing the principal in his or her absence.

A section string player plays in unison with the rest of the section, except in the case of divided ( divisi ) parts, where upper and lower parts in the music are often assigned to "outside" (nearer the audience) and "inside" seated players. Where a solo part is called for in a string section, the section leader invariably plays that part. The section leader (or principal) of a string section is also responsible for determining the bowings, often based on the bowings set out by the concertmaster. In some cases, the principal of a string section may use a slightly different bowing than the concertmaster, to accommodate the requirements of playing their instrument (e.g., the double-bass section). Principals of a string section will also lead entrances for their section, typically by lifting the bow before the entrance, to ensure the section plays together. Tutti wind and brass players generally play a unique but non-solo part. Section percussionists play parts assigned to them by the principal percussionist.

The fourth MCU movie is also the only one to put up a bigger second-weekend drop, 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. That movie dropped a massive 62.2% in its second frame to put up $44.2 million, behind War For the Planet of the Apes ($56.2 million). It’s possible that the second weekend drop for Ant-Man and the Wasp will be even bigger when the official numbers are released on Monday, but for now, its 62% drop stands as the second biggest in MCU history, just barely behind Spider-Man: Homecoming’s 62.2%.

All of the other MCU movies managed to win at least their first two weekends, with The Avengers and Avengers: Infinity War each winning its first three weekends and Black Panther with the biggest streak of all the MCU movies, winning its first five weekends in a row, a feat so rare it was the first movie since Avatar to do so.

With this huge second weekend drop, it also diminishes Ant-Man and the Wasp's chances of crossing the $200 million mark at the domestic box office, a feat all but four Marvel Cinematic Universe movies have failed to do. The four lowest-grossing MCU movies that couldn’t surpass $200 million are Thor ($181.1 million), Ant-Man ($180.2 million), Captain America: The First Avenger ($176.6 million) and The Incredible Hulk ($134.8 million). Ant-Man and the Wasp currently has taken in $132.8 million, and it should surpass The Incredible Hulk as the 19th highest grossing MCU movie (out of 20), but how much further up that list it will go remains to be seen. Even though it did debut higher than the original Ant-Man ($57.2 million), this huge second weekend drop and a competitive summer season, could eventually spell doom for the sequel’s box office prospects into the summer.

Ant-Man and the Wasp also hasn’t exactly been setting the box office on fire internationally as well, with a foreign total of $150.9 million for a global total of $283.7 million. That tally currently stands as the second-lowest worldwide tally in MCU box office history, just ahead of the $263.4 million earned by The Incredible Hulk in 2008. It certainly doesn’t help that the sequel hasn’t debuted in the second largest box office market in the world, China, thanks to the country’s annual summer blackout where only local films are screened during the summer break for school children. Ant-Man and the Wasp is expected to debut in the Middle Kingdom sometime this fall, after the blackout, but even if it hits big there, it may be too little, too late.

Worth a visit

First, I wasn't expecting kids. The show was amazing at times and a freak show at other times. It was amazing to see the agility, coordination and awe inspiring feats from these performers. Just a little disturbing at the age of the performers.

Thanks for the good words. They are awesome and very much awe inspiring as you say. In regards to the age of some of the Acrobats (which is difficult to guess), much like great gymnasts, dancers, and other athletes, acrobats begin training early. Those with excellent skills begin performing as soon as they have mastered their particular talent. In Branson many shows have kids performing - however ours are do stunning feats of human performance art.

Acrobats of China…did NOT disappoint

Those performers are top notch, leaving me in awwwwwwwe! What a wonderful gift to have in our area (I was able to see the show through an area appreciation (KY3) discount). The facility was nice but I do notice when there are not any intentional plants in the pots :( out front. The paintings that Yakov did are a good way to wait for the show to begin, I didn't realize he was a talented painter too. Lovely time!!!

Thanks for the great review! This troupe from the Jinan province of China is known world-wide as one of the most colorful and skillful acrobatic troupes. They created their show especially for Yakov's Theatre. We'll try and get intentional plants in the planters! Thanks

Must have bought tickets to the wrong Chinese Acrobats.

We bought tickets for the Chinese Acrobats before we left home without realizing there were to Chinese Acrobat Shows in Branson. We went to the New Shanghai Circus, It was Friday night and their were about 40 people in the audience. It really detracted from the show. It sounded like maybe 10 people applauded and it was hard to get into the show. The acrobats were great. Maybe the show at the Yakov theater was packed. I hope so for the audience and performers sake.

Hi: We think you've posted this to the wrong show. We are the Acrobats of China featuring the New Shanghai Circus at Yakov's Theatre. It is confusing that there is an acrobat show at a theater called New Shanghai Theatre...but regardless... you said the Acrobats were good and hopefully people reading your review will appreciate that piece of information! Our show has been in Branson for over 17 years and no matter what size of audience; our Acrobats give their all to create an exciting, dynamic show...and in return our audiences give tremendous approval. Next time come see us, we'd love to win your appreciation.

Highlight of the trip to Branson

I've seen acrobat shows before, but this is the cream of the crop. The show starts out with the traditional balancing chair tower, contortionist barrel girl, etc., but follows up the usual acts with a variety of mind-boggling feats. One girl juggles with her feet, an amazing young man balances on a rolling bench (and I won't spoil what he does next), etc. Just go.

Thank you! That is high praise as there are so many awesome acrobats. The Jinan Acrobatic Troupe: FenMO is considered to be one of the most elite Acrobats of China.
