The article analyzes the activity of conductor-choirmaster as a subject of cultivation with the help of conceptual models of culturological discourse. Moreover it determines the problem of the concept of "cultural creation", investigates the content potential of its conceptual derivations: "cultural art", "culture", "cultural carrier", consequently it analyzes their heuristic significance for the analysis of those processes of world and national culture, that are issued in the modality of cultural changes, achievements, cultural dynamics, the active subject of which is the figure of the choir conductor. The methodological potential of a non-classical philosophical and cultural toolkit made it possible to integrate narrowly specialized musicological principles of study into the historical and cultural context, into specifics of cultural realities, both historical and contemporary. In the context of culturological methodology and toolkit, the article deals with the typological characteristics of the conductor-choirmaster as frontierity and liminality, emphasizing the transgression of the creative component of conductor’s performance activities.
