St David’s Hall, Cardiff

Project Co-ordinator, International Concert Series Extras
(June 2014 – September 2015)

The St David’s Hall International Concert Series Extras is a series of special events attached to concerts in the St David’s Hall International Concert Series. Taking place in St David’s Hall’s redeveloped 100 seater Lefel 1 performance space, the series extends and enhances the classical music audience experience beyond the main concert programme, in addition to attracting new audiences to classical music:

  • Pre-concert: Talks, Panel Discussions & Masterclasses – a series of talks, lectures, artists conversations, panel discussions, and masterclasses related to the evening’s concert. Exploring partnerships with the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and Cardiff University, these sessions inform, entertain and education audiences attending concerts from the International Concert Series.
  • Post-concert: 30 Minutes – a 30 minute post-concert club-like performance of classical music related to the evening’s concert. Featuring repertoire of either contemporary classical or less familiar repertoire, 30 Minutes extends the experience for audiences attending the traditional classical music concert in addition to introducing new audiences to classical music.

As the Project Co-ordinator for the International Concert Series Extras programme, I was responsible for curating, negotiating and managing the programme.
