We were very sad that our regular leader, Nicola Ihnatowicz, has left us, but she is also a terrific soprano, and we wish her every success as she concentrates on her singing. We are delighted that she will be joining us as one of the soloists in our November concert and in our performance of Die Walkure Act III in February.

Past guest leaders have included Catherine Mackintosh, Zsuzsa Berenyi, Anna Kirkpatrick and Thomas Suárez.

We are now looking for an inspiring leader to be part of the orchestra's continuing development as one of the leading amateur orchestras in the country. Our leader needs to have strong technical skills and superlative musicianship as well as being easy-going and unflappable; someone who is accessible to all members and a leading part of the orchestra’s sociable and friendly atmosphere.
