The University of Gibraltar is honoured to host Karel Mark Chichon as part of its Beacon Lecture Series.
The Beacon Lecture Series brings Gibraltarians of the highest calibre from the worlds of academia, business, the arts and civil society to our campus to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences.
Lighthouses are beacons of light, which by their activity and prominence serve to illuminate their surroundings. There are individuals in our society who are beacons too, who have achieved distinction in lands beyond our Rock, where they continue to serve as sources of inspiration and motivation for our community.
Karel Mark Chichon is an internationally acclaimed conductor, regularly conducting the world’s finest orchestras and leading opera houses. Awarded an OBE and elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music in recognition of his achievements within the profession.
