Women Leaders Breaking the Sound Barrier

 

In this session, we will be examining a rich legacy of women in classical music and paving a pathway forward to leaders and heroines in the making. During a transformative time in our nation's history, each of us lead from every seat.  Beyond innovation and transformation we can bring about today, we also look forward by empowering others.  A candle loses nothing by lighting another: let us discover the ways in which we can pay it forward and augment our impact by lifting up those around us.
