Have you ever wondered what conductors are for? Have you thought what it might be like to earn your living waving a stick? Cheltenham-resident conductor Mikel Toms gives a candid exposé of the highs and lows (and occasional abject chaos) of a life beneath the baton. Join him as he reveals the colourful underbelly of concerts, rehearsals, recordings and touring.

This event includes an exclusive screening of Secret Lives of the Classics, Mikel’s film exploring the hidden stories behind Ravel’s sensational orchestral masterpiece, La Valse. Features Mikel conducting the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra.

For a good indication of Mikel’s unique take on things, take a look here:
