We are delighted to introduce our new General Manager, Flynn Le Brocq
Flynn has extensive experience across a variety of sectors including education, orchestral and events management and was most recently Fundraising Manager at the David Ross Education Trust. Alongside his new role at OBS, he will continue his roles as General Manager of Southwell Music Festival in Nottinghamshire and Company Manager at Nevill Holt Opera in Leicestershire.
Flynn will start in early 2021, working in close collaboration with Tom Hammond-Davies, Founder and Artistic Director, and providing Oxford Bach Soloists with sustainable, significant operational direction.
As General Manager, Flynn will be responsible for establishing new relationships with donors, festivals, and venues, pursuing recording and touring opportunities and overseeing all operations for the ensemble. He will also be heavily involved in all areas of the charity’s work including finance and company management, domestic and international touring (sales, logistics and delivery), recordings, strategic development, education and fundraising.
Flynn is taking over the role from Joe Littlewood, who departed in October to pursue a full-time role with the Civil Service.
Flynn said: “I am thrilled to be joining OBS at such an exciting time. While there are significant challenges ahead, particularly given the current global situation, I believe OBS are at a momentous point in their career to build upon their achievements and move forward stronger than ever. As a longtime admirer of Bach’s cantatas, it’s wonderful to join such an ambitious project to bring his music to a wider audience.”
Miles Young, Chair of the Oxford Bach Soloists said: “We are all delighted to be joined by someone of Flynn’s experience and skills. He is a perfect fit for us. We are excited for him to build upon Joe Littlewood’s successes and lead us into the future. His appointment speaks to our ambitious plans for emerging from the pandemic, continuing our unique mission, growing new audiences and extending our activities both on and offline.”
