On the personal invitation of Martyn Brabbins, Ondřej will attend a masterclass with the English National Opera orchestra. Elgar’s Enigma Variations are on the repertoire. This project is part of the ENO Evolve scheme for RCM students to which conducting students have not been invited before.
Update after the masterclass: Martyn’s generosity and the orchestra’s warm-heartedness and support made the whole experience a truly memorable event.
