Episode 106 - Jonathan Bloxham

May 8, 2022


Jonathan Bloxham and I have known each other for 6 years now and I knew he would be perfect to interview - we get along very well and I knew he would be open, honest, and interesting as he has a real passion for what he does.

As an example of that, he was very open about his experiences as Assistant Conductor with the CBSO, I discovered how a nightmare set of circumstances meant that his debut at Glyndebourne was very memorable indeed, and we discuss accents, not musical accents either!

The festival that Jonathan is the founder of, Northern Chords, can be found here - https://northernchords.com/
