Trustee, Winchester Chamber Music Festival
Richard York worked from 1963 in stage and production management roles with coincidental theatre refurbishment. This led to the National Theatre in 1972, bridging a gap between those building it and those who were to operate it. A similar role during the construction of the Barbican Centre led to a long run as Deputy Director. Prior to working as a consultant on cultural projects he was with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra for eleven years which included the procurement of the CBSO Centre, a rehearsal/chamber music hall. The design of theatres and concert halls remains a continuing interest.
