AskonasHolt have signed Marc Leroy-Calatayud, assistant conductor at Bordeaux, for general management.
Apparently, he’s a secret ballet freak:
‘The first time I entered the ballet studio in Bordeaux it was really a shock: it’s a very different universe with different words, different ways of working and different mentalities too. It was also a time when I didn’t really like the posture I had when I was conducting: I was very tense with very high shoulders. So I thought this would be a good way of learning a lot of things about ballet and how you should conduct it, and also improving my posture. I have private lessons very early in the morning when the studio is free. I really love it!’
Looks like it could be his usp.
