Conductor

I am a dedicated and critically acclaimed conductor. My professional experience has included conducting principal players of both the London Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonia Orchestra in contemporary music projects, but I mostly work with players of a wide range of ages and abilities, especially student groups. Please see 'Current Activity' for recent projects.

What follows is a selective list of canonic orchestral and choral-orchestral repertoire I have conducted, enjoyed, and have in readiness to do again. I would be very happy to discuss other repertoire I conduct, particularly new music and the many student pieces I have premiered. I am also happy to share promotional DVDs of myself conducting Dumbarton Oaks, Petrushka, and Richard Causton's Phoenix.
