Birmingham names orchestra chief

Stephen Maddock steps down next month after two decades running the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

His successor, it was announced today, will be Emma Stenning, latterly head of a Canadian theatre in Toronto.

Her credits include Chief Executive of Bristol Old Vic, where she produced the Bristol Proms and Executive Director of Battersea Arts Centre, which was then home of BAC Opera. She was also Head of Theatre at Arts Council England and
Cultural Programme Advisor at the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games.

Her Arts Council experience could be very useful in the coming storm.
