Do Men and Women perform differently ?

After my education of opera in Italy, I have been back to my home country Taiwan R.O.C. for almost 11 years. Now I moved to New York. There are many things different than in Taiwan. For example, there are many bus drivers or school bus drivers are women in New York. In my country, for the past 11 years, I have seen maybe only 1 female bus driver.

I am a woman, too. However, I am not such a feminism. Because I believe men and women have different character and capacity and duty, and on the individual base, everyone is still different. The most important is the co-ordination.

Many years ago, in the New York Philharmonic are only men. Then came few Asian men, then came many ladies. From the first impression when I visit their website, there are “seems” more women than men. Will this effect the sound of New York Philharmonic ? In Europe, especially in the very famous and traditional orchestra like Wiener (Vienna) Philharmonic and Berlin Philharmonic, they believe only men should sit in the orchestra, except harpist.

I think the most important is the co-ordination. In order to have great co-ordination, we need to be willing to understand our partners and support each other. Then we can perform also our daily life nicely like a good ensemble.
