In Conversation With Professor Dame Jane Glover DBE FRCM HonRAM (Music, 1968)
May 18 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Join St Hugh’s College for a very special online event with acclaimed British conductor and musicologist Professor Dame Jane Glover DBE FRCM HonRAM (Music, 1968). Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to hear from Dame Jane as she answers your questions and reflects on her incredible career in conversation with Professor Roy Westbrook, Senior Tutor, and second-year St Hugh’s music student and aspiring conductor, Lucy Warm.
An inspiration to so many, Professor Dame Jane Glover was recently awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Gamechanger Award for her pioneering work to bring more female conductors to the stage. She has conducted all of the major symphony and chamber orchestras in Britain, as well as orchestras in Europe, the United States, Asia and Australia, and she is much in demand on the international opera stage. She was the first woman to conduct at Glyndebourne, the second woman to conduct at the BBC Proms and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and, as recently as 2013, only the third woman to conduct at the Metropolitan Opera. She has been Music of the Baroque’s music director since 2002.
This event is part of the College’s series of celebrations to mark 100 years of Oxford degrees for women.
