Alpesh has become a patron of Awards for Young Musicians (AYM), a UK charity which supports talented young people from low-income families, helping them to overcome financial and social barriers in their musical journeys. Chauhan joins a distinguished list of patrons including Sir Simon Rattle, Dame Evelyn Glennie, Julian Lloyd Webber, Jess Gillam, Miloš Karadaglic, Thomas Gould, Tasmin Little, Zeb Soanes, Paul Lewis, Duncan Ward, Shabaka Hutchings and Professor Derek Aviss.
Alpesh will be making his Australian debut with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra in June 2020, with a programme of Strauss, Paul Dean and Shostakovich. For his debut, Alpesh will be joined by horn soloist Andrew Bain, Principal Horn of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and previous ASO member. Under Alpesh's baton, Andrew will be performing a specially commissioned Horn Concerto from Australian composer Paul Dean, a brand new work written to showcase the horn's unique capabilities.
