  • I think your picture is of a different Jonathan Lo- the Jonathan Lo who is the cellist of the wonderful Rolston String Quartet. It looks like you have even cropped the cello out!

  • All good wishes to him, but also to ‘JPJ’ from a former member from the early days of the Opera North orchestra.

  • Northern Ballet are one of the great institutions. I hope Jonathan is given the opportunity to build on JPJ’s legacy and expand the scope of their orchestral work.

  • The Jonathan Lo in your picture is from Vancouver, B.C., Canada, and plays the cello in a world-renowned string quartet.
