Trinity Orchestra appoints John Andrews as new Music Director
We’re delighted to announce the appointment of acclaimed British conductor John Andrews as Trinity Orchestra’s new Music Director.
Described by the Observer asked a ‘tremendous young conductor’, John Andrews is conductor-in-association of the English Symphony Orchestra, and currently works with the BBC Concert Orchestra, English Touring Opera and the National Symphony Orchestra to name but a few. He is in great demand thanks to a conducting style that combines empathy and feel for both music and musicians with an ability to communicate his ideas directly and powerfully.
He last conducted us in December 2015, when he delighted Harrow audiences with a fairytale-inspired programme of music.
John Andrews comments “I am absolutely delighted to have been asked to work with this lovely, talented and dedicated group of musicians and am looking forward to unveiling an enticing and exhilarating programme of fantastic works and soloists.”
Fran Freer, Chairman of Trinity Orchestra, says “I am thrilled that John has agreed to become our Musical Director from September 2016. He will bring a new dimension to the orchestra by extending our repertoire and ideas for new projects.”
John will conduct four concerts in Trinity Orchestra’s six-concert 2016/17 season, including popular orchestral music by composers including Dvořák, Berlioz and Rachmaninov. Full details of next season’s performances are now available on our concerts page.
