The interim Board of Trustees is delighted to announce the appointment of Dominic Jewel as NCO’s Managing Director.
Dominic will join us from the Three Choirs Festival, where as Chief Executive he has led the development of the world’s oldest classical music festival for the past three years. Bringing a wealth of management experience in the classical music sector, Dominic is also a proud NCO alumnus and passionate about the involvement of young people in classical music.
In welcoming Dominic’s appointment Roger Clarkson, NCO Artistic Director and Principal Conductor, said: ‘I am greatly looking forward to Dominic joining NCO-GB and to building a strong executive partnership with him. We have made tremendous progress over the past year, and the future is bright indeed. We will be building on strong foundations as we work alongside each other to take this wonderful organisation forward into the next phase of its development.'
Dominic is expected to take up his post early in the New Year, until which time Carrie Sage will continue as NCO's acting Executive Director.
