Philip Cobb, who became Joint-Principal Trumpet of the London Symphony Orchestra in 2009 at just 21, has quit to join the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
He says: ‘I’m delighted to have been appointed to the BBC SO. I can’t wait to get back to making music with the members of the orchestra and begin preparations for a wide range of future performances and projects.’
The BBC offers a monthly salary. LSO players are self-employed and extremely anxious in Covid shutdown.
