...
Adrian Brown, Musical Director
Adrian Brown comes from a distinguished line of pupils of Sir Adrian Boult.
...
Adrian has worked regularly with many leading British orchestras, including the City of Birmingham Symphony, the BBC Symphony, the BBC Scottish Symphony and the London Sinfonietta. He is also a great proponent of contemporary music and has several first performances to his credit.
Working with young musicians is an area where Adrian Brown has made a singular contribution to the musical life of not only this country, but also that of Europe, Japan and the Philippines. He has been a frequent visiting conductor both of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, working closely with Sir Colin Davis and Sir Roger Norrington, and the National Youth Wind Orchestra. He regularly runs courses for young musicians and his success in this general area was recognised when he was given the Novello Award for Youth Orchestras at the 1989 Edinburgh Festival conducting Stoneleigh Youth Orchestra. He has been Stoneleigh's Musical Director for thirty-five years, and conducted their Diamond Jubilee Concert in March 2005.
He has conducted at the Royal Academy of Music on a number of occasions and worked with their Senior Orchestra. He has been a regular chairman of the jury for the National Association of Youth Orchestras' Conducting Competition, taking the Chair again in January 2006. In 1996 he went to Japan to work with the Toyama Toho Academy Orchestra, a visit that was received with much acclaim.
Many engagements have included a performance of Tippett's A Child of Our Time, Verdi's Requiem and the works of Berlioz, Elgar and Vaughan Williams, all much admired. He received rave reviews in The Guardian for a performance of Strauss's Feuersnot with the Chelsea Opera Group and for his Ein Heldenleben. He has performed successful concerts with the Salomon Orchestra and Goldsmith's Sinfonia, returning to the Salomon in February 2005 for a concert at St. John's, Smith Square, performing British music including Tippett's Concerto for Orchestra, among many concerts celebrating the Centenary of Sir Michael, and receiving great acclamation for his interpretation.
In 2005, Adrian conducted his 25th season as Music Director of Bromley Symphony Orchestra and Waveney Sinfonia. He also joined the panel of jury members of Music for Youth as well as accepting invitations to perform with the Isle of Wight Symphony, Bromley Ecumenical Singers and Herts Philharmonia, and touring Dresden and Prague with SYO.

Adrian Brown was one of a hundred musicians presented with a prestigious Classic FM Award at their Tenth Birthday Honours Celebration in June 2002.
