Grandy said, “I am thrilled to join the IMG Artists roster and begin my collaboration with Pierig Stefan Escher and his experienced London team. In my eight years as General Music Director I gained a lot of experience in opera and symphonic repertoire, as well as leading a big house and expanding the audience in the city of Heidelberg. This chapter will end this summer and I am ready for new musical adventures. IMGA is the perfect partner to support my artistic vision and I am very much looking forward to the coming years.”

Escher said, “I am honoured to work with a dynamic musician of deep insight, who has built a name as conductor in the fields of opera as well as with symphonic repertoire within only a few years.
