The Conductor’s Circle is a group of remarkable Australian women who have generously contributed funds to help advance the career of PSO’s Chief Conductor, Jessica Gethin.


Bourby Webster, Executive Director of PSO, wrote to a few women to ask for help. She explained:

“Jessica Gethin is PSO’s Chief Conductor and one of the most talented people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Her career will fly with the right support.

As a mother, woman and Western Australian, she faces more barriers than most to launching her international career. I wish to change this with the support of 19 other incredible women who want to see Jessica succeed. I want us to help her get to the next level.

Please could you let me know if you might be interested in joining me, and whether you have a friend you could bring along too?”

The results so far have been incredible, and Jessica’s career has started to fly. We would like to acknowledge the women who are helping her:
