Sandy Burnett


"Warm personality coupled with vast background knowledge of music make Sandy an excellent Tour Director."


A graduate of St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, musician and broadcaster Sandy Burnett spent a decade as one of the core team of presenters on BBC Radio 3; highlights there included hosting the breakfast programme, presenting live broadcasts from the Proms and Edinburgh Festival, and interviewing many of the world’s finest musicians. Conducting credits have included a complete cycle of Bach cantatas as well as work with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal National Theatre and in London’s West End where he spent many years as musical director.
