Celebrating the rise of female orchestral conductors………………


The number of  female orchestral conductors continues to increase as male prejudices (and some female) continue to be challenged and only recently Marin Alsop was announced as conductor for the UK Last Night of the Proms 2015 .

So, how many can you identify? I will set you going by saying Marin Alsop is bottom right…….

      Hi Mike
      In all honesty I can’t remember as I do quite a lot of research and reading about the lack of opportunities for female conductors (as you will gather from the various blogs I have done on this subject). I got it off the internet somewhere, and I think it may have been via Norman Lebrechts website “Slippeddisc”
      I will try and track it drown and if I find it I will drop you a line.
      Best wishes

    I am now off to watch TV as there is a programme entitled Wynton Marsalis plays Blue Note, should be interesting.
    Best wishes
