Second edition: May to July 2020

The JPYAP’s LockDown/SkillUp (Conductors) initiative saw three groups of women explore opera repertoryand leadership skills under the tutelage of Sian Edwards and Jessica Cottis from May to July 2020.

Working without an orchestra, they refined their musical interpretations and technical expression to convey their auditory vision effectively within the inflexible parameters of a Zoom window. The work proved surprisingly illuminating and offered a welcome artistic focus at an uncertain time.  see more
