What's up this spring?

The Royal Academic Orchestra normally gives two larger concerts and two smaller concerts each semester. Through the years we performed a large range of events, for example opera, musicals, lectures, chamber music concerts and master classes.

The man behind the illustration

Jonty Clark, is the man who created the illustration for the family concert Musical storms and whom Musicum hired several times for his imaginative illustrations.

Who is Jonty Clark?

After graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1985, Jonty spent several years at the BBC as a Special Effects Designer, followed by about 7 more years as a Museum & Exhibitions Designer. Throughout this time he worked under cover as an illustrator & caricaturist, finally deciding to 'come out' properly as a freelancer in 1997. Since then he has produced images for almost all the national newspapers & many magazine titles, as well as undertaking advertising, museum and occasional publishing work.

A few years ago he illustrated 'The Wit & Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister', a Game of Thrones book published by Harper Voyager. He has contributed monthly to BBC Music Magazine for 23 years and has sold artworks to many of his subjects including: Placido Domingo, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Sir Mark Elder, Carl Davis, John Wilson, Peter Gelb, Moritz Eggert,  Paul Lewis, James Ehnes, Dame Evelyn Glennie, Roxanna Panufnik and Jan Vogler.
