ENO Mackerras Fellowship

The ENO Mackerras Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for an exceptional emerging conducting talent 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, the fellow works closely with our music team, acts as assistant conductor and off-stage conductor for selected ENO productions, assists and supports our ENO Harewood Artists.

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

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