Austin Davy spends hours every day sitting alone at a piano practicing. But when he plays for the theater, he comes alive. I like playing piano for singers because of the energy exchange, Davy said. And I love to conduct because it requires your entire body, and animation is allowed. I definitely have explosive energy, and the orchestra and singers really feed off the energy of the conductor. If you pour that energy in you really get it back, and thats what the audience sees.
