Behind the Scenes
Bristol Symphony Orchestra Management Committee
Rob Tulloh: Director
As well as being a violinist, my role is to ensure that the finances of the orchestra are secure and that we are able to deliver the concerts to a high standard.
The ability of players to mix with each other, to understand and to share our common goal of providing high quality music, is founded in trust in each other. This includes being able to communicate during the performance and to maximise our strengths. Hence we often organise orchestra social events, held at our own houses or out in restaurants and pubs. This allows us to get to know each other better and promotes a relaxed feeling in the orchestra whilst performing to the best of our abilities.
