Alana discovered her passion for orchestral administration through her time at university (though was organising events before that!), and was the Orchestra Manager for two years at Royal Holloway, University of London. Having graduated in 2016, Alana undertook an internship with Aurora, which gained her much experience in all areas behind the scenes, particularly production. Following this internship, she worked as Aurora’s Orchestra Assistant, and from summer 2018 is now Concerts Manager, a role she is very excited to do with an orchestra as versatile and exciting as Aurora.
When not working, Alana loves reading old classics, particularly detective fiction such as Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle, and is obsessed with Harry Potter.
My most standout memory is in my first weeks of working with Aurora, being backstage at the Royal Albert Hall for our concert with Björk and getting a high five from the lady herself – not something I'm going to forget in a hurry!
