Thanks to the generous legacy of Dr Crossley, the TSO is able to provide this valuable training opportunity at no cost to participants. Interstate applicants can also apply for an accompanying travel bursary. Observers are encouraged, and welcome to attend free of charge.

TSO CEO Caroline Sharpen said, ‘Dr Louise Crossley, an eminent Tasmanian scientist and environmentalist, loved the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and took pride in the equal representation of women on stage. It was her hope that one day women would be equally represented as conductors of the world’s great orchestras – a hope that the TSO is dedicated to supporting through its commitment to emerging artists.

Congratulations to Jessica Wells (NSW), Rachel Pogson (NSW), Cathy Chan (NSW), Joanne Waples (NSW), Elise Chong (WA) and Kate Freeman (QLD).
