Jeremy Garside's job as head of technology for the London Symphony Orchestra involves overseeing the IT and other technology needs for the three arms of the LSO's business - the orchestra itself, LSO St Lukes, the orchestra's UBS-sponsored music centre in Old Street, City of London, and LSO Discovery, the orchestra's education arm. Jeremy Garside also has some technology oversight for the LSO's website - www.lso.co.uk.
Garside works with a small team of just six people including an IT manager. There are two people who look after the technical aspects of the orchestra's concerts. At St Lukes, there are two people who are primarily venue technologists among a larger team managing the centre. There is one person who supports the technology needs of LSO Discovery.
We interviewed Jeremy Garside at the CW 500 club for IT Directors, where we asked his views on his career path, combining passion with a passion and the role of technology at the London Symphony Orchestra.
