How many female Conductors, Composers or Directors in the classical music world can you think of in 30 seconds? The likelihood is that the list may be fairly short. Why is this and what can we do to enact change? Where are all the women? is an event taking place on 7 June 2018 in Newport, to coincide with the première of Rhondda Rips it Up! The day will feature speakers from across the sector who will share their experiences, challenges and how they are making a difference. We will also launch a young female conductor-in-residence scheme, led by WNO, with an open call for submissions. Placement will be awarded in September 2018.

Tickets will go on sale in early 2018.
