This summer, Karen Kamensek will make her BBC Proms debut leading the Britten Sinfonia in a performance of Passages by Ravi Shankar and Philip Glass. Glass and Kamensek have a long history of close collaboration. For example, the American conductor had a great success conducting Glass’ Akhnaten at the English National Opera, immediately after which she was invited to return to lead another Glass opera, Satyagraha, in the following season.
Kamensek’s BBC Proms concert will take place on 15 August 2017 at the Royal Albert Hall.
