Conductor Jane Glover Joins Manhattan School of Music
for One-Week Intensive Culminating in a
Singer Master Class and Orchestral Concert

FEBRUARY 8 (NEW YORK): Jane Glover, the internationally acclaimed conductor and music scholar, will join Manhattan School of Music (MSM) this month for a week of rehearsals, a public master class, and a final concert with the MSM Chamber Sinfonia. Ms. Glover – praised for bringing an “invigorating fizz” to Chicago’s Music of the Baroque since arriving as Music Director in 2002 (Chicago Sun-Times) – has conducted England’s major symphony and chamber orchestras, as well as orchestras in Europe, the United States, Asia, and Australia.

On February 16, Ms. Glover, who has appeared with many of the world’s major opera companies (including the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera, Covent Garden, English National Opera, Royal Danish Opera, Glyndebourne, the Berlin Staatsoper, and many others), will lead a master class of Mozart’s opera arias and ensembles for students in MSM’s intimate Greenfield Hall. The master class will be open to the public.

The following week, on February 22, Ms. Glover will conduct the MSM Chamber Sinfonia in Neidorff-Karpati Hall. “We are thrilled to welcome Ms. Glover to MSM,” says MSM Dean of Performance Operations Nolan Robertson. “What a wonderful learning and performance opportunity for our students.” The orchestra will perform C.P.E Bach’s Symphony No. 2 in E-flat Major (Wq. 183/2), Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 in C Major, D. 922 (“Great”), and Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A Major, K. 622 (Chung Yoo, clarinet).

Known as a Mozart specialist, Ms. Glover was the artistic director of the London Mozart Players from 1984 to 1991 and has conducted every Mozart opera over the course of a string of international performances dating back to the 1980s. She is also the author of the critically acclaimed book, Mozart’s Women.

Both the voice master class (Feb. 16, Greenfield Hall) and concert (Feb. 22, Neidorff-Karpati Hall) are free and open to the general public; no reservation is required.
