"I'm going to slow down faster."
Last night our conductor said that in all seriousness as he was explaining how he would be conducting one of the tempo changes in the Annie medley we're playing. Well, I guess it does make some sense.
"Don't pay attention to me."
Maestro actually said that when he miscounted and called out the wrong measure number while we were playing. Maybe not a true oxymoron, but definitely a contradiction of what a conductor is all about. And definitely cause for a good laugh at the time.
