Some news to start your week!
The big news this weekend was that James Levine is stepping down from the Met. Anne Midgette talks about why a new conductor is long overdue – and WQXR speculates on who will fill the role. (Spoiler: no one is being on a woman taking the baton.)
Negin Khpalwak, the first Afghan woman to conduct an orchestra, is receiving more well-deserved attention! Follow this link to watch a video of Khpalwak and the all-female orchestra!
Fiona Maddocks of The Guardian has an interview with Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, who is conductor-elect for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
