Starting a residency programme for conductors inside the Academy.
The aim of this training is to promote equal opportunities for women and men in orchestral conducting by creating two posts for the training of opera conductors with equal recruitment for men and women.
The challenges of training for young conductors :
- To give the opportunity to conduct and train with renowned conductors.
- To acquire specific skills in opera conducting which require particular qualities and knowledge, different from those needed for symphonic conducting.
- To enable the creation of a professional network.
- Actively change the mindset of orchestral musicians and the public.
A personalised training pathway will enable the provision of excellent training.
