Born and raised in London with Cypriot roots, Dimitri studied music from a very young age, making the decision to pursue it as a career in his late teens.
Dimitri read music at the University of Birmingham where he specialised in Eastern European orchestral music, orchestration and solo performance. Dimitri currently works with the South London Symphonic Winds, the Cavendish Ensemble and Voices in Partnership.
During his time at Birmingham, Dimitri studied Classical Saxophone with Anna Brooks at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and graduated with the highest performance marks in his cohort. While at university, Dimitri was privileged to be given the opportunity to conduct the University of Birmingham Wind Band where he worked with British composer Philip Sparke to prepare and conduct the UK Premiere of Philip Sparke’s Wind Sketches with the University of Birmingham Wind Band in 2015.
After leaving University, Dimitri has continued to develop his conducting, studying with Howard Williams and John Farrer and has also been invited to study conducting under esteemed Finnish pedagogue, Jorma Panula.
Dimitri has a wide variety of performance experience, ranging from string quartets, to wind bands, symphony orchestras and choirs, with highlights including performances with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and eight European tours.
