Yvonne leaves the team after 12 years

Tuesday 28th August 2012 Yvonne Glass

After 12 years of service to JMI we are sad to announce Yvonne Glass will be leaving the JMI Team this week. Yvonne has been invited to act as a consultant over the coming years so this won’t be the last you see of her. We welcome our new Events Manager Gil Karpas and look forward to where we take Jewish Music.

A note from Yvonne:

“I consider myself really fortunate to have spent the last 12 years working for the Jewish Music Institute. I have had the chance to work with amazingly talented musicians, to organise concerts in such venues as the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Union Chapel, Bevis Marks Synagogue and the greatly missed The Spitz and to help arrange conferences, such as the highly acclaimed academic conference Art Musics of Israel at University College, London in March 2011. Of course the bulk of my work has consisted of organising JMI summer schools such as Klezfest and Ot Azoy! / Tumbala where I have had the joy of meeting so many interesting and diverse people, many of whom I hope to stay in touch with.

None of this has been possible without being part of a dedicated team of JMI staff and volunteers. It has been wonderful to work together, experiencing many highs and some lows along the way, but always with the desire to bring the best of all genres of Jewish music to a wide public audience.

Of course I will miss the friendship and support of the JMI team but I look forward to remaining within JMI as a consultant.

With best wishes,
Yvonne”
