Meet the Chairman - Huw Humphreys

10 Aug 2020

Huw followed in the footsteps of his older brother Kim when he came to Dulwich Prep as a 4 year old in 1976. Keen on rugby and cricket he excelled on the sports field. Off the field his spare time was devoted to music as a member of the choir and the orchestra. He was also a proud Mohican! With a music scholarship under his belt he went to Winchester in 1986 and on leaving there he read music at Oxford.

Huw is currently the Head of Music at London’s Barbican Centre where he has been in post since September 2014. This appointment brought him back to the UK after nine years as Director of Artistic Planning of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, a position he held following six years with renowned artist management agency Askonas Holt (Harold Holt until 1998) and four years as General Manager of the European Union Youth Orchestra.

Huw spends most of his non-music time related life religiously following the Welsh rugby and England cricket teams, and improving his golf swing.

In 2016 Huw became Chairman of the Dulwich Prep Old Boys Association.
