Women’s Conducting Institute

Aug 8–10, 2019

In 2019, HCCI is presenting a special 3-day event preceding the main institute — the first of its kind in Canada!

Looking to connect with other women conductors?

Wanting to discuss issues unique to women, from gesture to rehearsal technique to concert attire?

Interested in refining your conducting practice in a supportive community of like-minded women?

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.
