Marina Abel Smith Head of Individual Giving and Digital Development

Marina Abel Smith is our Head of Individual Giving and Digital Development. To contact her to discuss becoming an OAE Patron, call 0208 159 9319 or email  

Marina says,

“There is never a dull moment working for the OAE as our musical activities are wide ranging both musically and geographically. This was one of the reasons I came to work here along with the Orchestra’s story and incredible players. After graduating from Edinburgh University with a music degree, I worked at Garsington Opera for nearly four years before starting with the OAE in March 2018.

Do get in touch if you are interested in becoming a Patron, or donating towards either our projects or Education programme. Supporting our work is both rewarding and fun, and I would be delighted to discuss how you can get the most out of your donation.”
