We are pleased to announce the management for Europe and Asia for M.to Neil Thomson!
Neil Thomson, was born in London in 1966, studied violin, viola and conducting with Norman Del Mar at the Royal College of Music.
Since March 2014 he has served as Principal Conductor and Artistic Director of the Goiás Philharmonic Orchestra in Brazil. The Orchestra has rapidly developed a reputation for its dynamic performances, its wide-ranging repertoire (with a special emphasis on Brazilian and contemporary music). In December 2018 the Orchestra performed the South American debut of Messiaen’s monumental “Des Canyons aux Étoiles”. This was a highlight in development of the Orchestra and an extremely important moment in the history of Brazilian orchestral music.
From 1992 until 2006 he served as Head of Conducting at the Royal College of Music. The youngest-ever incumbent of this post (first held by Sir Adrian Boult in 1919 and later by Norman Del Mar), he was made an Honorary Member of the RCM in 1994 for his services to the institution and has established an enviable reputation as an orchestral trainer.
