What was the most beneficial aspect of participating in The Dallas Opera Hart Institute for Women Conductors?
This unique program explores a wide range of topics impacting future leaders in the field. For me, as a Europe-based conductor, it was quite interesting to learn more about the opera, musical theater, and orchestra systems in US. Also, I received very useful feedback from respected professional colleagues, who freely shared their experiences and insights with us.
Did the Hart Institute Help You Advance in Your Career?
In this season, 2019/2020, I assumed the position of music director at Theater Magdeburg (Germany), where I‘m responsible for both operas and concerts. I knew that I could achieve and successfully perform in this capacity after taking part in the Hart Institute for Women Conductors. I can’t imagine a better fit for me and my professional aspirations!
Do you have a favorite moment from the Institute you would like to share?
I would like to say “thank you” to all the mentors, supporters and staff people involved in organizing this program. I couldn‘t begin to single out one or another moments, because every day that we spent together in the institute was so intense and productive. I would just like to wish all my colleagues health and happiness, and I hope to see many of them on the world’s most influential podiums!
Have a wonderful 5th Anniversary celebration!
