Into Opera Welcomes Five New Trustees

By Afton Wooten

Into Opera has doubled its board of trustees with five new members.

The newly appointed members are soprano Elizabeth Llewellyn; Rosenna East, Managing Director of Sinfonia of London; George Chambers, the Head of Communications & External Relations at the Royal Academy of Music; and Jamie Morgan Hitchcock, an entrepreneur in tech development; and Press Harriet Wybor, the Head of Business Development at Oxford University.

They join David Walker, Fran Ludden, Charles MacDougall, Nicholas Simpson, and Professor David Waugh on the board.

The new year marks Into Opera’s launch of a two-year artistic and strategic residency program in five schools in Norwich. Also, it has partnered with Durham University and Professor Lynn Newton who will conduct research for professional development and teacher workshops.

David Walker, Into Opera’s Chair of the Board, said in a press release that “Today is an exciting moment for Into Opera. We are delighted to welcome five professionals with diverse careers to the charity’s board. Their combined experience will contribute enormously to the charity’s main aim of making opera more accessible for all, and determination to tackle the actual and perceived barriers preventing some people from having the opportunity means or inclination to experience opera. We look forward to announcing further plans in the near future.”
