Today’s panel discussion, recorded at the 2020 Dallas Symphony Women in Classical Music Symposium, is hosted by Kim Noltemy, President & CEO of The Dallas Symphony. She’s joined by orchestral industry leaders Marin Alsop, Marie-Hélène Bernard, and Deborah Borda for a very important look at the orchestra of the 21st Century.


To help celebrate today’s United Nations "International Day of the Girl," The Violin Channel, in collaboration with our good friends at the Dallas Symphony, is hosting an all-day special online festival dedicated to gender equality and inspiring the next generation of women in classical music.
