Anna Handler signs with KD SCHMID for General Management

We are pleased to announce that following a year as part of KD SCHMID’s Fellowship Scheme, conductor Anna Handler moves to the KD SCHMID roster for general management. 

This announcement shortly follows the news that Anna joins the Dudamel Fellow programme with the Los Angeles Philharmonic for the 2023/24 season. Anna made her debut at the Salzburg Festival last summer, leading the festival’s Opera Camp production featuring an adapted version of Janáček’s Káťa Kabanová. Anna received an immediate re invitation to conduct Salzburg Festival’s Jung & Jede*r production this summer of Ravel’s L'Enfant et les sortilèges, which premieres Friday 28th July. 

Karen McDonald, Managing Director, says “We are thrilled to welcoming Anna Handler to the KD SCHMID family for general management, following a wonderful year together as part of our fellowship scheme. We have so enjoyed watching Anna flourish, and we are excited to see what the future holds.”
