MusicPlus: Cayenna Ponchione
“The standing ovation said it all. In a place like Oxford we get so much coming through; it’s really hard to get people’s attention. But when people found out about this they turned out in droves.”
Cayenna Ponchione is the associate conductor of the Orchestra of St John’s and is committed to the promotion of gender and ethnic equality in conducting and composition.
She speaks to Chris Gunness about promoting social justice through music, and her experience of hosting the Afghan Women’s Orchestra in Oxford.
