Orlando Jopling at Canon Pyon Church
Cellist and conductor Orlando Jopling has such a huge list of achievements that it is a challenge to select just a few. He has worked with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra and the London Mozart Players. He has played as guest cellist with the great UK orchestras and conductors such as Bernard Haitink, Mark Elder, Ricardo Muti and Sir Simon Rattle and has given recitals in places as diverse as the United States, European destinations, Israel and India. He was principal conductor and advisor of the Royal Orchestral Society for 10 years and Associate Conductor of English National Ballet until 2020. He works as guest at the Royal Opera House and Royal Ballet and has co-founded two opera companies. He is also artistic director of the Roman River Festival and last year formed the Rasumovsky Quartet.
Alongside his performing and teaching career, Orlando has given almost 125 solo recitals in beautiful UK churches raising funds for their upkeep as part of his Cello Pilgrimage. We are extremely fortunate (not to mention thrilled) that he has agreed to perform for Herefordshire Historic Churches Trust with a concert this Autumn in Canon Pyon Church . We hope very much that you will be able to join us for his programme of inspiring music.
