Mélisse Brunet has been selected among 11 other candidates to compete in the La Maestra Conducting Competition, the first international competition for women conductors!

This is an incredible initiative that aims to discover, celebrate and support the world’s most talented women conductors and inspire younger generations wishing to pursue similar career paths.


-Brunet’s reputation as one of the world’s top, young female conductors continues to grow- ............................................. -Mélisse Brunet led the ensemble with conviction...and repeatedly found moments of scoring and melody that can only be described as delicious. – Seen and Heard International, 2019 (review of debut concert with CityMusic Cleveland)
