How hard can it be to conduct an orchestra? Come on, waving a wand and making dramatic faces - even Bugs Bunny has done it! Now, how hard is it for an orchestra to perform without a conductor? Ah, thats a different question. (Sorry, we have no cartoon reference for this one.) The River Oaks Chamber Orchestra is giving it a go during its Valentines Day Conductorless Concert and dinner. The program includes music by Haydn, Dvorak and Janacek, as well as some promised surprises. 5 p.m. The Houstonian, 111 North Post Oak.
