For nearly ten years Arnold has been connected to the conservatory as teacher and head of the Percussion and New Music Departments. A composer, prominent percussion soloist and director/artistic leader, Arnold will be able to provide a valuable contribution to the development of the Conservatorum van Amsterdam in the near future. He will succeed Sven Arne Tepl, who has been appointed artistic leader with The Hague Philharmonic Orchestra.
Janneke van der Wijk, Director of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam: ‘In Arnold the Board of Directors of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam will get a highly experienced musician who has made his mark in the field of music both nationally and internationally. His clear vision ties in with the direction the Conservatorium van Amsterdam is taking. We look forward to a long and fruitful cooperation.’
