The Institut Français du Royaume-Uni organizes a second talk #WomenShapingTheWorld on November 26th, 2020 at 1:30PM (EST), following its first talk with conductor Claire Gibault about Conducting and Equality in 2018, and in the wake of the inaugural edition of the Maestra International Competition for Women Conductors last September!

To enhance your Thanksgiving, join an exceptional live streamed panel on Facebook and on Youtube dedicated to gender equality in classical and contemporary music, organized in partnership with the Academy La Maestra, the Philharmonie de Paris and the Paris Mozart Orchestra.

Maestra second prize winner, conductor Stéphanie Childress will discuss with composers Anne Lovett (Faber music), Angèle David-Guillou (laureate of Diaphonique, our Franco-British fund for contemporary music / Village Green), Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch (Manners McDade) and Héloïse Werner (The Hermes Experiment) about their own perspective on equality, and will share updates about their careers in a panel chaired by BBC Radio 3 presenter Katie Derham. This live talk will be complemented by live musical interludes!
