Althea conducts her own works as well as others’. Her sense of timing is impeccable as well as her ear for detail. As an apprentice to Pienaar Fourie, former conductor of the Johannesburg Symphony Orchestra, Althea conducted the Johannesburg Symphony Orchestra in concert. Maestro Fourie has a heart for giving back to the community and built the East Rand Youth Orchestra. On weekends Althea assisted with the Youth Orchestra, taking over rehearsals when Meastro Fourie was otherwise occupied. Her experience with the Youth Orchestra taught her to communicate her thoughts clearly and succinctly while maintaining a positive collaborative environment.
Althea works out of Boston, MA. With her network of musicians, she is a sought after concert director and conductor. Reach out to Althea here for collaborations and concerts.
