Professional engagements since his graduation in 2015, include working for the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (Associate Musician), Cumbria Youth Orchestra (Music Director), Highland Regional Youth Orchestra (Conductor), the National Youth Choir of Scotland (Musicianship tutor and Workshop leader), and Scottish Opera Youth Company (Assistant Conductor).

Eager to embrace the challenges and rewards of music making at all levels, Leon has been heavily involved in the community music and education scene across Scotland and the UK. Notable engagements include Glasgow Orchestral Society (Conductor), the City of Carlisle Orchestra (Music Director), Amicus Orchestra (Assistant Conductor) Paisley Sinfonia (Music Director), Lomond and Clyde Community Orchestra (Music Director), and for the University of Glasgow (Musicianship tutor and Singing Workshop leader).

Having been brought up as a singer, Leon also enjoys frequent choral conducting opportunities, most notably as the Associate Conductor of the University of Glasgow Chapel Choir and Glasgow Chamber Choir and as Conductor of the University of Glasgow Choral Society. Leon has led ensembles at several major festivals, including the Edinburgh International Festival (2016, 2018), the Celtic Connections Festival (2015, 2017, 2020), St Magnus Festival (2015) as well as Glasgow’s West End Festival (2017, 2018).
