Last weekend, the Halle Orchestra assistant conductor Jamie Phillips announced he’s engaged to be married to Rosie Lowen. Lovely news, lots of happiness, tap your stands next time he walks into rehearsal.
Last night, Jamie got another engagement. He’s to be one of three Dudamel Fellows next season with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Tap stands, please, very vigorously.
The other two Fellows are well known to Slipped Disc readers. Matthew Aucoin is a rising star with the Chicago Symphony and Adrien Perruchon upgraded recently from percussion to baton. Get stuck in there, fellows.
