Helen Thomas: Women Conductors in Liverpool
Discovering conducting mid-career transformed Helen Thomas' approach to making music. An academic first and foremost, she's been growing her baton portfolio over the last few years, including an RPS Women Conductors course in 2017. It's what inspired her to bring Women Conductors to the University of Liverpool last month. She now conducts Chester Sinfonia alongside her busy teaching schedule. In this week's blog, she writes about how conducting opened doors for her, her new ensemble partnership, and her work for women in music.
