|Sir Gerald Kaufman, Labour MP for Gorton, Manchester, has been appointed a Trustee of the Manchester Camerata Trust. Sir Gerald has been a supporter of the orchestra for a number of years.
Speaking about his appointment, Sir Gerald said, "I am very pleased to be joining the Trust at this exciting time, when the appointments of Gábor Takács-Nagy as Music Director and Giovanni Guzzo as leader add a new, international dimension to the orchestra's profile. I am very much looking forward to working with the creative and imaginative team behind this remarkable orchestra."
Michael Grindrod, Chairman of the Trust, said, "We are delighted that Sir Gerald has accepted our invitation to join the Manchester Camerata Trust and so formalise the very good relationship we have had with him over the years.
