Crispin Woodhead Chief Executive

Crispin Woodhead is our Chief Executive and oversees the running of the Orchestra.

As well as the very serious business of running the Orchestra, you’ll often find Crispin giving lively pre-concerts talks and study days. These have proven so popular that we’ve started our video series, Crispin Explains, to try and capture them for you.

Before a varied career in the music industry, Crispin was an Organ Scholar at Pembroke College, Oxford, where he took a degree in modern languages. Later he became a junior lecturer and fellow in keyboard studies at the Royal Northern College of Music. You can still appreciate his organ skills when he plays as the audience enters the Hall for our Bach, the Universe and Everything concerts at Kings Place.
