Conductor Richard Egarr To Step Down From Cambridge's Academy of Ancient Music

It has been announced that conductor Richard Egarr will step down as Music Director of the Academy of Ancient Music

It has been announced this week that keyboard performer and conductor Richard Egarr will step down as Music Director of the Academy of Ancient Music, in Cambridge, United Kingdom – effective from the conclusion of the 2020-2021 season.

Richard, 54, has served the role for the past 15 years.

"Since taking over the reins from Christopher Hogwood over a decade ago, Richard Egarr became the perfect ambassador of AAM with his energy, passion and love of music ..." AAM leader Bojan Čičić has said.

"His ability to transform a performance into an exceptional event is something that we all cherish ... I am really looking forward to presenting these unique concert experiences in our remaining three years together," he has said.

The ensemble have indicated they will commence their search for a replacement in coming months.
