The London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO) has named DR CATHERINE HØGEL as Chair of its Board of Directors.
Having served as Vice-Chair for the last three years, she succeeds LADY VICTORIA ROBEY, who was the first non-player Chair in the LPO’s history and held the role for 10 years.
Høgel has previously served on the board of British and international arts organisations and charities including the Dunard Fund, Colburn School of Performing Arts, Awards for Young Musicians and the Honorary Board of the Royal Opera House.
“At a time when there is, more than ever, a need to support classical music and the arts, I am honoured to have this opportunity to work so closely with the LPO’s extraordinary musicians, management and supporters,” she said.
“I enter this role with huge excitement for the future of this remarkable organisation.”
