Sarah Bardwell, director of the Handel House Museum, has been announced as the new general director of the Britten-Pears Foundation at Aldeburgh.
Ms Bardwell is married to the conductor Rumon Gamba, music director of NorrlandsOperan and chief conductor at Aalborg Symfoniorkester.
She will take up her new role in October, following the retirement this summer of Richard Jarman. “On behalf of everyone at The Red House,” added Nick Prettejohn, “I would like to thank Richard for transforming BPF over the past thirteen years, particularly through the worldwide Britten 100 celebrations. We all look forward to working with Sarah to build on these great achievements.”
