This article entitled "Symphony's Ragnar Bohlin tunes up with aikido"
highlights Mr. Ragnar Bohlin, chorus director for the San Francisco Symphony, who practices aikido at Suginami Aikikai in San Francisco.
From the article: "In aikido, a lot of energy goes through your hands, and in music, a lot of energy goes through your hands," said Bohlin, a first-rank black belt. "You need to direct the energy and harmonize that energy. With conducting, I want the chorus to breathe together, phrase together and be together with my movements."
