There Are Not Enough Female Conductors on the Podium

I think we sometimes forget that fact here at San Diego Opera, but it is true. You see, we're blessed with not only an incredible resident conductor, but one who also happens to be a woman; Karen Keltner.

Today's Variety takes a look at female conductors and why there are so few of them. The good news: there are more on the podium now more than ever. The bad news: there are still not nearly enough.

You can read about why here.

We'll try to get Karen to join in the conversation as well, but she's busy working on music this morning. The season is quickly approaching!!!
