ENO Mackerras Conducting Fellowship

The ENO Mackerras Conducting Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for an exceptional emerging conductor to develop their skills through a structured two year programme with mentoring from members of the ENO music team and visiting conductors.

Throughout the programme, our Fellow works closely with our music team, acts as assistant conductor and off-stage conductor for selected ENO productions, as well as assisting and supporting our other talent training programmes, including ENO Harewood Artists.

This Fellowship celebrates the legacy of Sir Charles Mackerras, ENO Music Director between 1970 and 1977. Our current Fellows are Toby Purser and  Matthew Waldren.

The ENO Mackerras Conducting Fellowship is made possible with the generous philanthropic support of The Philip Loubser Foundation.
