Last evening I was able to attend the postponed CoMA concert from March this year (remember that unseasonal snow!?). The People’s Orchestra, conducted by Dan Watson, were in great form, and they played my piece ‘Hummingbird’ excellently. It was lovely to meet their members and to get to chat about the importance of music-making for everyone. It was also lovely to talk with fellow composers Ailís Ní Ríain and Nigel Osborne, who both had excellent performances too. I believe that a recording was made so I will post it when it becomes available.
I was delighted to be able to attend last week’s rehearsal for BCMG/The People’s Orchestra contribution to this year’s CoMA Festival. Dan Watson (pictured) led a wonderful rehearsal of my new piece ‘Hummingbird’. This weekend will see this piece performed in both Birmingham and London as part of the festivities, and I can’t wait to hear it!
