She was the curator of the 2010 multi-arts Deloitte Ignite Festival at the Royal Opera House, bringing together visual artists, contemporary dance, film and theatre installations, as well as music collaborations.

She has worked with many eminent conductors - Pierre Boulez, Sir Colin Davis, Sir Simon Rattle and Michael Tilson Thomas amongst them - and has premiered many landmark compositions ranging from Sir Harrison Birtwistle and Django Bates to John Adams and James MacMillan. In May 2010 she gave two acclaimed performances of Messiaen’s Turangalîla Symphony with the London Symphony Orchestra and Valery Gergiev.
Joanna MacGregor made her conducting debut in 2002 and has solo-directed concerts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Liverpool Philharmonic, Manchester Camerata and the Hallé, and enjoys a close artistic partnership with Britten Sinfonia, in programmes ranging from classical music to collaborations with jazz and world musicians.

Her own record label SoundCircus was founded in 1998 and has released many highly successful recordings including the Mercury prize-nominated Play (including music by Bach, Ligeti and Piazzolla) and Neural Circuits, with music by Messiaen, Arvo Pärt and Nitin Sawhney. Current releases include Sidewalk Dances – music by the New York street musician Moondog - and Deep River, music inspired by the Deep South, with saxophonist Andy Sheppard. In 2010“Live in Buenos Aires” and Bach’s Goldberg Variations, recorded at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, were released by Warner Classics and Jazz, now in partnership with the worldwide distribution of the SoundCircus label, followed by a 4-CD Messiaen set. Seven futher releases are scheduled for summer 2011.
