Inspiring Women Luncheon

Was held on Tuesday February 26, 2019 from Noon till 1 PM at Women’s Resource Center.

Women’s Resource Center was in partnership with the Western Piedmont  Symphony and it was a very special Inspiring Women Luncheon!  The $10 registration fee included lunch & space was limited, so reservations were required.

 

 

 

Less than twenty percent of all orchestra conductors are women!  Mélisse Brunet is one of four candidates being considered for the position as the Western  Piedmont Symphony’s next Music Director and Conductor in the Maestro Challenge.  Ms Brunet inspired everyone by sharing how she is breaking down barriers in this male-dominated profession!!!
