About the London Mozart Players
The London Mozart Players is one of the world’s finest chamber orchestras, internationally renowned for live performances with a long history of association with many of the world’s finest conductors and soloists. The ensemble, which celebrated its 70th birthday in 2019, is resident orchestra at both Fairfield Halls, Croydon and St John the Evangelist in Upper Norwood, and a frequent visitor to concert halls in London and beyond. LMP is run by a small hands-on team that is inspired to enrich all lives through music. The LMP is a pioneer in outreach work and its projects reach into the heart of many communities, taking music to young people in schools as well as those who can no longer visit the concert hall, to stimulate, entertain and inspire creativity. More recently, LMP notably bucked the trend during the pandemic, finding innovative ways to maintain its connection with the community that it has worked hard to build over time. The orchestra has managed to keep the music playing and support its musicians while maintaining a close bond with its existing audience. LMP has been at the forefront of the exploration of online events, experimenting with a hybrid of live and digital concerts. This is a great opportunity for an ambitious, creative individual with extensive marketing experience to join LMP’s small management team and help shape the future of this exciting ensemble.
The Marketing Manager will report to LMP’s Chief Executive.
