Ginny Macbeth – Macbeth Media Relations

Ginny Macbeth

Finding herself in New York with nearly 10 years of working in various sectors of classical music under her belt – including 18 months touring in Europe and the US with a concert pianist – Ginny set up on her own in New York in 1986, and in London in 1989. The combination of being on the road and three years in New York gave her considerable insight into the need for artists and organisations to own their own stories and to be comfortable to tell them. Back in the UK for more than 30 years, the agency continues to maintain its contacts with the US and works with a small and high-profile roster of international clients. Ginny has served on the Board of the ABO since 2014 and was appointed an Honorary Associate of the Royal Academy of Music in 2019. She is enormously proud of the fact that Julian Anderson’s Prayer for solo viola is dedicated to her.

Martina Furlan – Macbeth Media Relations

Martina Furlan

Being from a musical family, it was inevitable that Martina would study music in some shape or form. After finishing her studies in harp at the Conservatoires of Verona and Bolzano, along with a BA in Interpreting and Translation at the University of Bologna, Martina decided to pack her harp and bags, and moved to London in 2013. After three years working in luxury hospitality, she joined Macbeth Media in August 2016, where she works side by side with Ginny to generate press for the organisations represented by the company. As well as taking care of the core administrative work and setting up events, a large part of Martina’s role is researching and planning press initiatives.
