Timothy Orpen appointed Principal Clarinet, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House

We are delighted to announce that Timothy Orpen has been appointed Principal Clarinet in the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and will take up the  position in October.

The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House was founded in 1946 on the reopening of the Opera House after World War II. The Orchestra plays for nearly all performances given by The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet on the main stage of the Royal Opera House, under Music Directors Antonio Pappano (The Royal Opera) and Koen Kessels (The Royal Ballet). In addition to their commitment to main stage productions, members of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House play an active role in smaller-scale projects including many with the Royal Opera House’s Learning and Participation Department.

We will bring you more news of Timothy’s work with the Orchestra of the ROH later in the year.

The above background to the orchestra is taken from the ROH website.
