Ryan Bancroft, the incoming Principal Conductor of BBC National Orchestra of Wales, talked to the students, from Toronto, about his past disciplines including trumpet and dance and how that’s informed his career. They discussed programming new music and how important, as a young conductor it is to champion diversity in classical music.
Listen to Ryan's full Lockdown Lowdown free of charge and look out for the other #RWCMDLockdownLowdowns in the series.
Thank you to our host, RWCMD Director of Music Tim Rhys-Evans and our RWCMD students who asked the brilliant questions.
