CONDUCTOR AND COMPOSER
British born Jamie Man (born 11 July 1987, London) conducts and composes. She began her musical life as a pianist and was first guided into conducting by Jorma Panula. Other most notable influences on Jamie's conducting life include Oliver Knussen who she assisted in Aldeburgh and Bernard Haitink who she first met in 2010.
Jamie was founder of the Birmingham Sounds Free Project (2009) and in 2010 won the Britten- Pears Conductor Bursary (UK). Recent conducting highlights include appearances at the Aldeburgh Music Festival (2011) in concert with pianist Pierre- Laurent Aimard and cellist Jean- Guihen Queyras (BBC Radio 3 debut), 'Yellow Lounge' at the Old Vic Tunnels (London) and work with Romain Bischoff in De Nederlandse Opera's production of Claude Vivier's Kopernikus in collaboration with VocaalLAB.
Jamie's work in the UK has been presented at the Royal Opera House, Linbury Theatre (London), Purcell Room (London) and Snape Maltings (Snape) where her first chamber opera SATYRS with libretto by Toby Litt was staged after development on the Jerwood Opera Writing Programme. Jamie is currently a Sound and Music Embedded composer with The Opera Group (UK) with whom she will create a new work for 2015.
