Good Luck.
woman will conduct orchestra at world's oldest and biggest music festival for first time ever. The BBC Proms started 118 years ago, include 92 concerts over 8 weeks, but have never had female conductor. American Marin Alsop will take charge of orchestra for final concert – legendary Last Night of Proms. This is distinctly British occasion to celebrate "pomp and circumstance" of Britain. Ms Alsop told BBC: "I think fact that I'm American woman, conducting last night of Proms is really statement." Talking of her achievement, she said: "I'm extraordinarily proud to be first woman, but I'm also sad that it's 2013 and there still can be firsts for women."

director of Proms Roger Wright said he was happy to be part of changing "man's world" of conducting. He said: "Marin hasn’t been chosen because she is woman conductor. She knows and loves Proms." Ms Alsop said: "I always enjoy working with British orchestral musicians and I'm particularly looking forward to interacting with audience, who play such crucial role in making this night that is utterly unique and special. It is great honour that I know will be highlight for me." She added: "The whole world is watching you. You're addressing biggest audience of your career. It's nearest a classical musician gets to acceptance speech at Oscars."
