    I hate this new layout design.
    This trendy grabbing of female conducting “talent” is a sure si9n of favoritism without standards of excellence. That is not good for anyone.

    • Bruce says:

      Because if standards of excellence were being adhered to, then the conductors hired would be ___________? (fill in the blank)

  • John Rook says:

    I like the pleading look on her face: ‘See, I’ve bought a baton; now just put the juicy contract in my left hand’.

  • Women Conductors Rule! says:

    This is a clear sign that women are taking over the conducting profession.

  • Alfredo Jantjies says:

    I’ve been a conductor for the past 18years, and just because i do not have grades due to the fact that i train our church choirs, i was unsuccessful in an Application to compete in a conductor competition due to that. I love training choirs an working with them an would love to take it further.
