Ingrid Martin transforms lives through music.
Her life-long mission: to make classical music relevant, interesting and engaging for everyone.
Insatiably curious, Ingrid constantly asks "Who is it for? Why are we doing this? How could it be better?"
Her answer usually involves challenging norms and ditching long-held traditions to create meaningful experiences for audiences.
Ingrid's projects forge unlikely connections between music, venues and other disciplines - whether it's an orchestra playing Ravel in a pub, or chamber winds playing Kurt Weill amongst renegade modern art.
On the podium, she empowers musicians to uncover and share their unique artistic voices. The result? Deeply human performances that unite musicians and audiences.
2021 sees Ingrid continue as Artistic Director and Conductor of the Crosswinds Ensemble, Victorian Youth Symphony Orchestra and Bayside Chamber Orchestra.
Ingrid shares her unique approach to musical leadership through Conducting Artistry, her online learning platform for conductor development.
