Dr Jane Glover CBE (Music, 1968) given Gamechanger Award by Royal Philharmonic Society

Many congratulations to St Hugh’s alumna and Honorary Fellow Dr Jane Glover CBE, who has been recognised by the Royal Philharmonic Society with a prestigious Gamechanger Award.

The award, for “recognising those who break new ground in classical music”, was awarded to Dr Glover “for earnestly carving a path for women conductors, long before it became a movement”.

Since leaving St Hugh’s and her debut in 1975 at the Wexford Festival, she has had an outstanding career as a conductor, leading all major symphony and chamber orchestras in Britain, and conducting many others overseas.
