Kate Lowes, our Head of Programmes, blogs about the next phase of our Both Sides Now programme – a three-year initiative to support, inspire and showcase women in music across the North of England – and we want to hear from you.

Conductors for Change gives music leaders the tools, strategies and practical conducting techniques to set up a new instrumental ensemble, or develop an existing one. Created by a team of highly experienced music directors and educators this flexible programme of hands-on training days is rooted in inclusive practice.
