Isabella Lau: IWBC Conference

The International Women’s Brass Conference is focused on female brass players and their contributions to music, and serves as a space for women to meet and preform. Through a series of presentations, performances, and volunteer, Isabella was able to connect to other female brass players in a predominately male field and learn how to advocate for herself and her career. Participants also had the opportunity to compete in a solo competition and receive feedback on their playing. This conference balanced emphasis on performance skills with career development leaving participants with skills to shape their careers, tips for performance, and a network of women in similar professional fields.
