Only one woman gets through to ‘leading’ conducting contest (and she’s Irish)main
The finalists have been announced for the 11th Cadaqués Orchestra International Conducting Competition and the bad news is that only one female contestant got past the prejudice barrier in the preliminary round. She’s Sinéad Hayes of Ireland and she’s up against 12 males. We’re rooting for Sinéad.
The competition will be streamed live, starting tomorrow Sun. at 10 a.m. here.
