For five years, the Dallas Opera’s Linda and Mitch Hart Institute for Women Conductors has done something that few other major companies have done – champion women conductors.
The program, the first ever designed to meet the needs of women opera conductors, has allowed participants an opportunity to engage in a wide-range of musical opportunities alongside some of the most acclaimed music directors working today. The organization also places a premium on helping the participants navigate the business aspects of the business, helping them select the right artist manager and take on fund-raising, personal branding, and media management, among others. . .
