I am thrilled and honoured to announce that I have been appointed Principal Conductor to the Huddersfield Philharmonic Orchestra. I had my first rehearsal with the orchestra on Tuesday 1st October and my debut concert is Saturday 9th November at Huddersfield Town Hall. We will be joined by cellist Laura van der Heijden, who was winner of the 2012 BBC Young Musician of the Year, in a performance of Elgar’s Cello Concerto. The orchestra will also perform Rossini’s Overture to the Barber of Seville and Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony. Tickets are now on sale and you can book here.

International Masterclasses Berlin
I am really looking forward to September as I have been chosen to participate in the ‘International Masterclasses Berlin from the 8th-12th’. The Masterclass is with Maestro Michail Jurowski and the Berlin Sinfonietta. The course will focus on the music of Russian Masters Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich, and what makes this masterclass unique is the fact that Jurowski was a close family friend of Shostakovich himself. It will be a privilege to work with the Berlin Sinfonietta and Michail Jurowski on a daily basis, concluding by conducting the orchestra in concert at the end!
