Our New President – Thorben Dittes

Thorben Dittes



In a week when a new President of the United States has been inaugurated, we are delighted to announce our very own new President.

Thorben Dittes, Director of Royal Northern Sinfonia and Classical Programme, has been a vital supporter of our Kendal programme for several years. Thorben, who is based at The Sage concert hall in Gateshead, takes over as Honorary President of Lakeland Sinfonia Concert Society from John Summers who recently retired from Hallé. Read more here.

We need a new Treasurer

Our long-serving Treasurer, Fraser Rae, is retiring, and we are looking for a new Treasurer to oversee our bookkeeping and accounting team. This is a voluntary role, working with the Trustees to ensure that our robust financial position is maintained. This is a real opportunity to get involved in the heart of the Society and to shape our future systems and procedures. Find out more here.

Other New Trustee Opportunities

We are also looking to expand the number of Trustees and various opportunities are available. There’s a really strong feel-good factor that comes from doing your bit to ensure that world famous soloists, conductors and orchestras continue to perform to live audiences in Kendal. It’s not much work, is great fun, and it’s really rewarding to be involved in making such successful live classical music events happen.
