MAWOMA : Yacht Club de Monaco - The first international classical music festival dedicated to women conductors

The first international classical music festival dedicated to women conductors

Clemence Guerrand, founder of the SONATE organization, is launching the MAWOMA Festival.
MAWOMA is a classical music program of world-renowned performers which aims to spread and promote the ideals of universality of music.

MAWOMA will be on tour all over the world and will go to meet young women destined to become conductors.
Throughout its international and musical journey, the festival aims to celebrate young talents on each continent, and promote them, and invite them to shine in Monaco.
Women conductors are rare, and this is why we decided to dedicate this first edition to them.

During the many concerts, they will be leading the most prestigious orchestras.

We also see in a women conductor a symbol of female leadership, who is not

dominant but leading.

MAWOMA chose to commit to the protection and development

of childrenworldwide alongside AMADE Association, under the Presidency

 of HRH Princess of Hanover.


Founded in 1963 by HRH Princess Grace of Monaco, AMADE aims to build a world where every child, regardless of social status, cultural or religious background, can live in dignity, and where the fundamental rights of everyone are being respected.  AMADE aims  to allow children to express their full potential as creative beings. 
AMADE objectives:
– Protecting the most vulnerable children against violence, exploitation and abuse.
– Promoting the development of children through education and health care.  
– Supporting changes through specific community based programs. 

AMADE stands for equal opportunities and fights against gender discrimination.
AMADE is specifically engaged in addressing gender equality issues and favours the protection of girls who are victims of violence, abuse or discrimination. The foundation actively promotes access to education, particularly in high school.

This should be a life changing opportunity and the start a successful career in the field of international orchestras.This social project cannot be achieved without your support. All profits of the funds raised for this events will be allocated to AMADE in order to support its program in Kinshasa dedicated to the care and reintegration of young street girls, who are being accused of witchcraft and persecuted.  Woman play a pivotal role in the improvement of children living conditions. They have to be resourceful conductors in order to juggle the education of children, and daily tasks for the life of their families.
