I’m thrilled to announce I’m joining the ranks of Britten Sinfonia as their new Sub-Principal Clarinet! I’m very happy to share this exciting news with you all, and to get started with them in the coming weeks.
Britten Sinfonia is a chamber orchestra renowned for its innovative programming and fresh takes on old classics. There’s no principal conductor or director, making each project a new opportunity to collaborate with musicians whose talents and interests span a huge range of different genres. I’ve always been in awe of what they do, and I feel so lucky to now be a part of this incredible ensemble.
Upcoming projects include working with Sir Mark Elder and Thomas Adès on Brahms and Beethoven symphony cycles, a brand new piano concerto by living jazz legend Brad Mehldau, and collaborations with Sir James MacMillan and Steve Reich, among many others.
