  • Phillippa Cole

    Associate Director

    Phillippa studied the oboe at Chethams School of Music and the Royal Academy of Music. She decided early on that making oboe reeds for the rest of her life was not an option, so went into arts administration. Her first job was at the Almeida Theatre where she worked mainly on the contemporary opera season and the co-productions with Aldeburgh Music. After five years at the Almeida she moved to be the Casting Administrator at English National Opera, before joining Askonas Holt in 2006. When she is not on a plane she loves giving dinner parties, going to the theatre and the Californian sunshine.
