Women’s Conducting Institute

Aug 8–10, 2019

In 2019, HCCI is presenting a special 3-day event preceding the main institute.

The Women’s Conducting Institute will focus on topics specific to women in the field — such as women’s leadership, physical confidence, and commanding attention and respect — with the aim of empowering women conductors to make a greater impact on their ensembles and communities, while creating a supportive community of women conductors and providing opportunities for networking.

This event is open to conductors of all skill levels and will be especially relevant to women conductors.

Registration for WCI will open on January 1, 2019.
