Donne Foundation’s Gabriella Di Laccio shines a light on female and non-binary musicians

In Classical Music’s spring issue we talk to Donne Foundation founder Gabriella Di Laccio about why, despite strides towards equality, her organisation’s advocacy for the recognition of women in classical music is still desperately needed. Meanwhile, Dale Wills explores the technology helping musicians avoid hearing loss and Clare Stevens delves into the 25-year history of Camerata Ireland, the ensemble inspired by the Good Friday Agreement. We also focus on the Royal Choral Society’s royal beginnings and bright future, look behind the scenes at the hidden world of stage managers and hear from #ConcertLab creative director Matt Belcher about redefining the traditional concert format with Southbank Sinfonia. Editor Florence Lockheart sits down with PPL classical music relationships manager George Prince for a Q&A about his rewarding role while some of the UK’s best touring talent share their top travel tips and most memorable touring tales. Elsewhere in the issue we find out how the British Association for Music Therapy is helping musicians support the most vulnerable and how the New World Symphony’s Miami home is helping orchestra fellows prepare for a digital future. Our final thoughts come from Royal Philharmonic Orchestra managing director James Williams as he prepares to move to the Royal College of Music. Plus, our usual news, opinions and focuses on funding, venues, touring and more.
