Breaking: Top change at another UK institutionNews
Two days after Roger Wright announced he was stepping away from Aldeburgh, the Royal College of Music is announcing a successor to its long-serving director, Colin Lawson.
The new chief is to be… the Managing Director of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, James Williams.
James is the most entrepreneurial of London orchestra managers. He has brokered relationships for the RPO at the Royal Albert Hall and Cadogan Hall, far from the unstable South Bank and Barbican. The RPO has the busiest diary of any London orchestra and its players looks happier on stage.
Good call by the RCM.
