2MBS-fFM General Manager Nigel Bates
Nigel Bates General Manager
After a freelance period working with most of the London orchestras and ensembles - which included a varied musical diet of concerts, recordings and touring - Nigel was appointed Section Principal Percussion of the Royal Opera House Orchestra, Covent Garden in 1993, where he very much enjoyed meeting the many percussive challenges he encountered in the world of first-class opera and ballet.
In addition to his main orchestral duties at Covent Garden, Nigel was involved in projects for the ROH Education Department, the Linbury Theatre and ROH2 productions such as William Tuckett's The Soldier's Tale.
Nigel left the Royal Opera House Orchestra in July 2009 as the family emigrated to Australia. He is married to a former Birmingham Royal Ballet dancer, the Australian Karen Donovan, and they have two children. Nigel's projects since he arrived in Australia have included the establishing of a community orchestra in Central Queensland, a chamber music series at the Sydney Opera House, an arts lecture tour from Canberra to Cairns, conducting the Capricorn Coast's first ever performance of Handel's Messiah (with over 150 performers) and managing a statewide composing competition for the Queensland Music Festival.
In December 2010, Nigel was appointed to the position of General Manager at 2MBS-FM 102.5, Sydney's fine music radio station with a substantial listener and subscriber base. He is very much looking forward to exploring the exciting opportunities and meeting the challenges that will emerge as 2MBS enters a new stage in its proud history.

Nigel is principal percussionist at Royal Opera House and, after our half- hour annual general meeting, will take us on a light- hearted tour of backstage life there. He will entertain us with his 'I was there' account of the challenges, trials and tribulations encountered in the production of world class opera, ballet and music at Britain's flagship arts institution.
