Conductrix

Finally, at long last, and to much hoo-hah in the press, a woman will conduct the Vienna Philharmonic, a famously stubborn all-male holdout organization which had the grace, a few years back, to finally admit a female to their orchestral ranks--a harpist, of course. But hell, this is progress!

Thanks for posting this! It is indeed very exciting to see, and it is about time. :)

Along the same lines, the Women In Music Festival at the Eastman School of Music is designed to promote women in all areas of music making. We're already in our second year, and I'm excited to be the assistant director again!
