Congratulations to pianist/composer and Artistic Director of Edition Records Dave Stapleton. It just been announced by the Turner Sims Concert Hall that he has been appointed to a professorship at the University of Southampton, on a renewable one-year contract.
The Turner Sims Concert Hall is part of the campus of the University. As part of his duties, Stapleton will be lecturing and mentoring music students.
Stapleton told us:
”This appointment is incredibly exciting and I'm absolutely thrilled to be working with such a prestigious venue such as Turner Sims. They have been consistently putting on some of the best music in the world in both classical and jazz, so it’s a complete honour to work with the venue in this way. The professorship is also closely associated with the music department at Southampton University too so I'm very much looking forward to working with the students not only as a musician but also in the music business and career management.”
