Longborough Festival Opera Announces New Non-Executive Chair of the Board

By Francisco Salazar

The Longborough Festival Opera has announced that Andrew Mosely will become the Non-executive Chair of the Board of Trustees starting Sept. 1, 2023.

The festival said that the news comes as they plan the Ring Cycle year which will be staged in 2024 alongside a new production of Puccini’s “La Bohème.”

Mosely has spent over 30 years in senior corporate leadership roles in the UK and the US and has extensive experience as a board level advisor in the delivery of performance insights within blue chip organizations, primarily in the financial services, technology, media, and consumer products sectors.

He is currently Chairman of Metapraxis Nordic AB, a Swedish management consultancy, and a Trustee and Treasurer of the Cosman Keller Art and Music Trust. He succeeds Lizzie Graham in the post.

In a statement, Mosely said, “This is an exciting time to be taking over as Chair of Longborough’s Board of Trustees. Our artists and musicians are in outstanding form, and, under the Artistic leadership of Polly Graham, we have continued energy and a fresh vision for taking forward the commitment to excellence and innovation which has characterized Longborough’s work since the festival was co-founded by Martin and Lizzie Graham in 1991. I look forward to supporting the festival as it reaches yet greater heights of artistic achievement.”
