What do you do?
As MD of the orchestra, I conduct many concerts in East Devon but also through private funding, I have been organising, on a voluntary basis for many years, smaller scale concerts/workshops/recitals by young, renowned artists to which all generations have been invited. Often the soloists have come from Devon. I have especially concentrated on putting on events to inspire young people to attend with parents and families and be inspired to consider studying an instrument and generally take a wider interest in classical music and jazz. Other events have focussed on enhancing/supporting music appreciation in East Devon schools both primary and secondary.
Who would you like to collaborate with?
Local schools, colleges and churches.
