     Gamba, Rumon (1973-Present)

    He is an orchestral conductor born in England.  His initial musical studies were at Durham University before moving on to the Royal Academy of Music in London where he studied conducting, taking classes with acclaimed conductors such as Maryn Brabbins, George Hurst and Sir Colin Davis.  During his stay there he won the Harding Bursary, a Henry Wood Scholarship and the Royal Academy of Music's performers diploma that would make him the first conducting student to receive one.  It wasn't long before he was beginning to be headhunted and soon he would be the Assistant Conductor with the British Youth Orchestra and the Havant symphony Orchestra.  Since those years he has appeared as a conductor with the orchestras that include BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Tokyo Symphony, Munich Philharmonic the Manchester Camerata, Assistant Conductor for the BBC Philharmonic which was given to him as part of him winning the Lloyd's Bank BBC Young Musicians '98 Conductor's Workshop, and his current position of Chief Conductor and Music Director of the Iceland Symphony Orchestra. Releasing many recordings, he often concentrates on classic film scores alongside the masterpieces of many of history's acclaimed recordings.  In 2002 he was honoured with being made an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music in London.
