Mark Fitz-Gerald returns in 2019 for another instalment of the Light Orchestra. Mark brings with him a wealth of expertise, having been at the helm for many major orchestras and in major opera theatres all over the world. He has made a speciality of the orchestral accompaniment of silent films and has recently conducted the world premiere recording of his own reconstruction of Shostakovich’s film score Ovod (The Gadfly). Mark particularly enjoys exploring the rich repertoire of light music, and encourages participants to suggest their own favourites. He will also bring an extensive library of his own. We are looking for a balanced team of string, brass, wind and percussion players, who should be of at least intermediate standard.
