“I have over 30 years experience of working with artists, orchestras and performing arts organizations throughout Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa. I built a network of connections across the globe and have hundreds of thousands of air miles under my belt. More than anything though, it’s the countless cross-cultural experiences I’ve had and the human connections I’ve made which have been my greatest teachers and inspiration” – Trudy Wright, former Board Director and Head of Tours & Projects at Harrison Parrott
