The Vienna Phil’s Men’s Club

It’s been almost ten years since the Vienna Philharmonic admitted its first woman musician. And now? “There has been no change in the m/f ratios in the Vienna Philharmonic in the last ten years. They still have only one woman member. And she is still a harpist, Charlotte Balzereit. And the orchestra’s opera formation has fared little better. Only six women have been hired, but two were fired after their trial year.”
