Ruth Goldstein, Education Officer

Ruth Goldstein joined the Wigmore Hall team as Education officer in 1996. She studied cello at the Purcell School with Eileen Croxford and continued music studies at Kingston University. Throughout school and college Ruth was involved with running and performing with several ensembles and continues to play regularly with the Giddey String Quartet.

After freelancing as a cellist for a year she did some work experience with the London Symphony Orchestra. After two weeks she was offered a job with the Education Department. She stayed with the LSO for 8 months before moving to the Wigmore Hall.

Ruth writes: ‘My time at the LSO, working for one of the largest and most established arts education departments, provided me with an excellent training in music education management. However, working at the Wigmore Hall is like coming home, as my heart really lies with chamber music. It is a privilege to work in such a wonderful building with an unrivalled source of knowledge and inspiration from the artists who perform here.’

‘The education programme is developed to complement the Hall’s artistic programme. Enhancing the experience for everyone, whether they are our regular audience or newcomers. An ever-expanding programme keeps me busy and its breadth means the work is never boring. From fun holiday workshops for families for 5-year-olds and their parents, which bring children – and their parents – into the hall often for the first time, to in-depth study sessions and workshops with young professional musicians.
