All the latest ABO Conference interviews

ABO Conference 2015

London Symphony Orchestra

The Association of British Orchestras' annual conference will take place from January 28th-30th 2015 at the Sage Gateshead, and Classic FM will be there to cover it.

  • As always, the ABO conference will feature a huge line-up of industry experts and professionals discussing the next move for British orchestras.
  • The focus for this year's conference is on People Power, asking the question: "as the tectonic plates shift, putting our industry under ever greater pressure, are we investing enough of our time, money and energy in our people, and perhaps more importantly in ourselves?"
  • Classic FM will broadcast live from the Sage Gateshead while the conference is happening, and we'll be chatting to delegates, speakers, musicians and tastemakers to get their perspective.
  • Key debates on orchestras, video games music and the power of online will be hosted by Classic FM's Anne-Marie Minhall and John Suchet. 
  • Speakers include video game music composer James Hannigan, artistic director of the Bristol Old Vic Tom Morris, and Universal Music A&R legend Costa Pilavachi.

Orchestras are everywhere...
