The ISM at the Third International Conference on Women's Work in Music

The ISM continues to work in partnership with the biannual International Conferences on Women’s Work in Music, hosted by the School of Music at Bangor University. The Third International Conference of Women's Work in Music will be held online on 1-3 September this year, and will provide virtual spaces for discussion, music and networking.

During the conference, ISM CEO Deborah Annetts will chair a panel of experts who will debate the impact of the pandemic on women musicians, and a special concert will mark the Music School’s centenary at Bangor University.

2021 also marks the 200th anniversary of the virtuosa composer-performer Pauline Viardot (1821-1910), and Dr Florence Launay, renowned expert on French nineteenth-century female musicians, will give a Keynote Presentation. Virtuosa composer-conductor Eimear Noone will give a Keynote on her award-winning compositions for film and video game music, and her work as a conductor of some of the world’s leading symphony orchestras. ISM President Elect Vick Bain will also present on 'The Original Gig Economy – Gendered Precarious Working in the Music Industry'.

The full 3-day conference programme can be viewed now, and you can book your place, with a special 15% discount on registration fees available to ISM members.
