Women in Classical Music Symposium

Dallas Symphony Orchestra

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) announced today the programming and guests for the second annual Women in Classical Music Symposium. This intensive and comprehensive symposium, sponsored by Billingsley Company, will be held November 8-11, 2020, in Dallas, with featured talks and panel discussions on topics relevant to women in the classical music industry and their unique struggles and triumphs.
The event will also include important networking opportunities with pathways for discussions and conversations relevant to individuals in all roles of classical music – orchestra members, soloists, composers, conductors and administrators – and at all stages of careers. During the symposium, the DSO will present concerts led by Marin Alsop and featuring violin soloist Hilary Hahn as part of its Texas Instruments Classical Series. Additional support for the symposium was provided by Texas Women’s Foundation, Joanne Bober and Yon Jorden. This event is presented as part of the DSO’s extensive Women in Classical Music initiative, which is supported in part by Capital One, The Eugene McDermott Foundation and Martha Wells.
“While the current circumstances keep us from being together, we are working hard to prepare for this much-anticipated fall event and ensure our attendees have a great experience, whether that is in person or virtually,” said Kim Noltemy, Ross Perot President & CEO of the Dallas Symphony.
Topics for this year’s Symposium include “Breaking Barriers – Women in Classical Music,” “Motherhood and Music – Women as Caregivers,” “DEI: Transforming (presented by Laura Colgate & Joy-Leilani Garbutt, Co-Founders, Boulanger Initiative) and “Music and Wellness.” Returning this year, the popular Mentorship Speed Dating session allows attendees to make meaningful connections and was a favorite event during the inaugural Symposium.
