For the past two seasons, Mark Biggins has been our Conductor, helping us shape exciting programmes and leading us through inspirational rehearsals and memorable concerts. We all hoped he would continue in his role with us for many years to come. However, a combination of a burgeoning professional career and a very serious bicycle accident in London has forced him to stand down.
We thank him for his short, but splendid time with us and wish him a full, speedy recovery and continued success with English National Opera.
We also thank Robin Browning for being our guest conductor in June, November and again in March 2020 while we decide on Mark’s long term successor.
