Hart Institute for Women Conductors awards 2021 Fellowship to Christine Brandes

Étude Arts celebrates Christine Brandes for having been awarded a fellowship into The Dallas Opera’s Hart Institute for Women Conductors.  This groundbreaking endeavor, which has changed the face of classical music by significantly advancing the careers of women in the most visible position in the orchestra, is the world’s first program designed to meet the needs of women opera conductors and is the only program of its kind which seeks to address the extreme gender imbalance of leadership on the podium in opera companies.
