The Glover-Edwards Conducting Programme is aimed at women conductors to bridge the gap between undergraduate and postgraduate study.

The programme is for women who are considering applying for a Master’s in orchestral conducting in the UK or abroad.

Sian Edwards, the Academy’s Head of Conducting, leads the course in a series of workshops and mentoring sessions.

The first weekend of the 2022/23 programme took place on Friday 9 to Sunday 11 September 2022 at the Royal Academy of Music. Three further weekends then took place in October, November, and January 2023.

The fee for the first weekend is £150, with generous bursaries available. There is no fee for existing Academy students. If you are selected for part two of the programme, there is no fee.

We will make substantial contributions to all travel and accommodation expenses for participants.
