Mark Fitz-Gerald returns in 2017 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 conducted the world premiere of his own restoration of Shostakovich’s film score Odna. 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.
