The inaugural Wavelength Day saw us collaborate with the Royal Philharmonic Society, Surrey Arts Music Hub and the Association of British Choral Directors We identified key issues for women in choral conducting, initiated discussion and promoted current work and the women doing it. We aim to design and propose further initiatives that enable women to succeed as choral conductors at every level and at every stage in their careers.
The Wavelength Day took place on Saturday 3rd November 2018 in Woking, Surrey. It was held at Christ Church, Woking, GU21 6YG.
Here are some of the comments we received following the event:
“The concert was phenomenal with a great spirit and commitment; the culmination of a special day”
“The choral problem solving was fab. I also loved Amy’s warm up”
“Wavelength has genuinely helped me with the psychological aspects of approaching my career, and putting myself forward, boldly”
“It was so good to meet new musicians and to have time to reflect on my own career, and to hear about other people’s journeys”
“Wavelength gave me the opportunity to shape ideas and meet other people working in the same areas of music”
“The most interesting and valuable part of the inaugural Wavelength event was Alicia’s talk on spinning plates which has caused me to rethink how I distribute my time. I also thought Amy’s ice breakers and warm ups were really fun and will work well in choir rehearsals.”
“I picked up lots of problem solving techniques in the ‘managing conflict’ session”
“I really enjoyed today and have found it really insightful and inspiring!”
“Alicia’s spinning plates session really resonated with me – I need to balance my life and create some boundaries!”
“It’s great to feel part of a community and compare notes with like-minded people with similar, but varied, experiences”
“Thanks for a stimulating day; bring on the next one!”
