As part of the Southbank Centre’s 2017/18 season Marin will conduct a new staging of Bernstein’s Mass to coincide with Leonard Bernstein’s centenary year. The Mass will be performed as part of a Bernstein weekend (6-8 April 2018) celebrating the spirit of idealism, protest and questioning of the mid-twentieth century, embodied by the great American composer, conductor and educator.
Marin is to be the conductor for this year’s Last Night of the BBC Proms with a star-studded line-up. She will also conduct the Orchestra of Age of Enlightenment in an all-Brahms Prom in September 1.
