Caroline Newton comments:
‘I am delighted to be joining Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and to continue the wonderful work undertaken by Jackie Newbould during her extraordinarily successful time at BCMG. Birmingham Contemporary Music Group is a jewel of an organisation; it produces vital new art, working at the highest level, collaborating with the best musicians, and with the composer front and central in its mission. It is idealistic, unpretentious, challenging and thrilling and I am very much looking forward to working with this ‘ensemble of possibilities’.’
Commenting on Caroline’s appointment, BCMG Chair, Christoph Trestler says:
‘The arrival of Stephan and Caroline to BCMG this summer opens a lively new chapter in the artistic life of the ensemble.
