In Good Hands: The Making of a Modern Conductor

Alice Farnham is listed in Classic FM Today’s Ten Best Women Conductors. Recent engagements include concerts with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, Southbank Sinfonia.

Who dreams of becoming a conductor? What does it take to get there and stay in the game? In Good Hands is not a guide on how to conduct: it is a frank, fascinating portrait of what conducting really entails today. It is a book about leadership, full of timely sentiment on who gets to lead, and what it takes to unite and inspire people.
