Bar Avni a new Conductor’s name to remember

The third edition of the La Maestra International Competition for Women Conductors, held from 14 to 17 March 2024 at the Philharmonie de Paris, has just crowned Bar Avni. The 34-year-old Israeli conductor also walked away with almost all the other special prizes awarded during the competition: Prix des Salles et Orchestres français, Prix Echo (awarded by the European Concert Hall network), Prix Arte (from the Franco-German television channel) and the Prix du Paris Mozart Orchestra. Second place went to Liubov Nosova (30) representing Russia. Finally, 29-year-old German conductor Katharina Morin took third prize and the Prix Génération Opéra awarded by the Centre français de promotion lyrique. The jury for La Maestra 2024 was chaired by Nathalie Stutzmann, Music Director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and still the only female conductor to lead a major orchestra in the United States.
