IMG Artists sign Jessica Cottis
September 5, 2016
IMG Artists is delighted to welcome conductor Jessica Cottis to its roster for General Management.
Jessica will be represented by Vice President of Artist Management Naomi Ives and Associate Artist Manager Maarit Kangron from the company’s London office.
The “gifted” (The Times) Australian-born conductor Jessica Cottis has captured international attention for her intellectual rigour, innate musicality and charisma on the podium. In demand as a guest conductor, she has led major orchestras in Australia, New Zealand, The UK and Europe including the Sydney, New Zealand, Queensland, Adelaide, BBC, BBC Scottish and RTV Slovenia symphony orchestras; London Philharmonic Orchestra; Orchestra of the Royal Opera House; BBC National Orchestra of Wales; l’Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo; and Bit20 Ensemble Bergen. Since 2014, she has held the position of Principal Conductor of the Glasgow New Music Expedition.
In August 2016, Jessica made a celebrated BBC Proms debut. Charlotte Gardner in Bach Track writes that, “the performances…were a triumph. …Cottis dived in with equal aplomb…displaying a naturalness and confidence.”
Jessica said, “I'm absolutely delighted to be working with IMG Artists for this exciting new chapter of my conducting career.”
Naomi said, “We are all thrilled to welcome Jessica to the IMGA Roster. She has an innate musicality and is a wonderful communicator, already acting as an inspiration to the younger generation.”
