From January 2016, I am excited to announce that I will be working with Brackley and District Band in a year long collaborative project. As part of my ongoing research project into successful working relationships between composers and performance groups, this collaboration will result in three new works. More details to follow as the project develops.
Update 29th March 2017
Second composition is underway with a projected performance date of 30th June 2017
Update. 17th July 2016
“Farewell” has now received two performances.
Update. 28th March 2016
First sketch for a new theme performed by the band. First statement flugal solo, baritone, trombone and euphonium accompany. Second statement full band.
Update. April 2017
“Farewell” published by Wright and Round. In terms of exploring composer / ensemble relationships and the legacy left by creative collaborations, this has been a hugely positive example.
Update. September 2017
A welcome return to writing for brass band after a focus on Leamington Chamber Orchestra and CoMA London. Projected performance of the next short piece is December 2017.
