Mirga gets Boy Friday

Jonathan Bloxham is the new Assistant Conductor at the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

Working closely with Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla and visiting conductors – as well as the CBSO’s Michael Seal and Simon Halsey – Jonathan will provide rehearsal notes and advise on balancing issues for main-season CBSO concerts at Symphony Hall.

Jonathan says: ‘I’m thrilled and honoured to be joining the CBSO family next season. It’s a very exciting step for me and my career as a conductor. I can’t wait to start working with and learning from Mirga, Michael, Simon and the Orchestra.’

  • Don’t know him, but apparently there were over 120 applicants and the amount of artistic and technical know-how on the panel that appointed him was formidable. Given that he’s following in Alpesh Chauhan’s footsteps, this suggests that he’s very worth watching.

  • Jonathan has what it takes: extraordinary talent, insatiable curiosity, collaborative spirit, and emotional intelligence to spare. Very excited to see what happens next.
