Viv’s career started in orchestral management at the BBC Symphony Orchestra in London. She managed the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for a period during 1990, organising a two-week tour of Europe and a trip to Paris as well as the normal touring venues in Wales and England.
Her involvement continued peripherally during her time in TV production in BBC Wales’ Music Department.
She also set up a tour of Wales for a Swedish choir, procuring dates and organising transport, accommodation and publicity.
In 2008 Viv’s work in this area recommenced, with freelance work for IMG Artists Orchestral Tours division, working with the Bolshoi Opera and Ballet in Athens, Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi, Madrid, Beijing, Lucerne, Lausanne and a European tour for the orchestra; and with The Cleveland Orchestra in various European cities.
