Congratulations to Joséphine Korda, Opera North's new Female Conductor Trainee

Joséphine Korda Opera North's Female Conductor Trainee 2022-23

Joséphine Korda has been announced as Opera North's 2022-23 Female Conductor Trainee, and she takes up the intensive 9-week scheme with the company while studying for her masters at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Opera North's annual programme is aimed at addressing the gender imbalance in classical music and offers emerging conductors wide-ranging experience and support within the company.

She studied composition and conducting at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, and advanced contemporary repertoire conducting at the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana. She founded the Paris Sinfonia, with whom she conducts concerts featuring classical and contemporary music, and during her studies at Oxford University she created the Occasional Orchestra, for which she commissioned new works from choreographer Charlotte Edmonds to enhance symphonic repertoire with performance art.
