Young Women's Conducting Workshop at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge

Young Women's Conducting Workshop

Event Summary 

Our annual Young Women's Conducting Workshop (YWCW) is run in collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Society's Women Conductors Programme. 

This is an extremely exciting programme which offers training in conducting technique and musical leadership and is a fantastic opportunity for building self-confidence and developing a new skill in the process.

‘It is so important to encourage young women in their early teens to plant the seed of an idea that conducting could be for them - to take the plunge and have a go. Traditionally the lack of role models has meant the it may not even have occurred to them. Conducting is a tough and highly competitive profession to go into, but the first steps are about having the confidence to stand up in front of a group people.  This course fits nicely with the work we have been doing at ‘Women Conductors with the Royal Philharmonic Society’ - encouraging female music students and professionals into conducting’ Alice Farnham, one of Britain's Leading Women Conductors

"It was really fun (and nervewracking at times) conducting in front of a live string quintet! It was my first experience conducting and I'd love to do it again". Young Conductor
