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

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