The ENO Mackerras Fellowship celebrates the legacy of Sir Charles Mackerras, ENO Music Director between 1970 and 1977, by providing a unique opportunity for an exceptional emerging conducting talent to develop their skills through a structured two year programme with mentoring from ENO Music Director, Edward Gardner.
Throughout the programme, the fellow works closely with our music director, acts as assistant conductor and off-stage conductor for selected ENO productions, assists and supports our ENO Harewood Artists and shadows Edward Gardner at his guest conducting and recording engagements.
