Karen Ní Bhroin
Karen Ní Bhroin, whose career on both sides of the Atlantic is attracting attention wherever she conducts, is one of Ireland’s leading young conductors. This season, Karen makes debuts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, TRNC Presidential Symphony Orchestra (Cyprus) and she returns to the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland for a concert broadcast live on RTE.
Creator of And Other Duties, The Life of the Assistant Conductor, Karen is on a mission to change conducting education: to teach the things that are not usually taught and to create a forum for honest conversations and communication. As a partner with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Karen is developing, conducting and presenting the orchestra’s community and education programmes over the next three years.
