Manchester Camerata has a strong team of directors who play a crucial role in guiding the business of the orchestra at a particularly challenging time. They oversee the development of policy, strategy and operations - underpinning the orchestras sense of purpose and direction. They work closely with the Artistic Team to manage and develop the company helping to make it one of the most exciting and forward thinking music organisations in the country.
|Director - Alistair Cox
Member since 2011
|Alistair Cox is a Councillor representing the Moss Side Ward in Manchester since 2002.
He is currently the Vice Chair of AGMA's Statutory Functions Committee.
His music expertise is more by association than personal. From a Salvation Army family, his childhood was dominated by brass bands, and both his brothers subsequently pursued careers in music. One brother, Adrian, is currently a music professor and pianist in Vienna, and the other, Gordon, has recently retired as Head of Music Education Studies at Reading University.

He is a keen supporter of the Camerata and takes a particular interest in its work with young people.
