In 2022, we welcome Daniel Hogan to conduct the Sinfonietta.
Described by composer Matthew Taylor as ‘without doubt one of the finest conductors of his generation… a musician of real stature, depth of knowledge, insight and understanding’, Daniel Hogan is a 24 year old British conductor currently studying under a full scholarship at the Royal College of Music.
He was the founder of the Watford Youth Sinfonia when he was 17, and since they have performed works rarely tackled by youth orchestras under his leadership, such as Mahler’s 9th symphony and Stravinsky’s ‘The Rite of Spring’. He also recently founded the Sinfonia Perdita, a young professionals orchestra consisting of musicians from London conservatoires, dedicating to performing composers overlooked by the standard repertoire. Daniel is also developing a busy schedule conducting some of the country’s finest amateur orchestras, being named Music Director of the Kew Sinfonia and Orpington Symphony Orchestra. He is taught by Toby Purser, Peter Stark and Howard Williams and has taken part in masterclasses with renowned conductors Martyn Brabbins, Jac van Steen, Ben Gernon and Sir Antonio Pappano.
