This summer I was delighted to hear the premiere of my piece ‘When Voices Rise’ which I wrote for the Manchester Chorale’s 40th anniversary competition back in 2019. The premiere was delayed unfortunately on a number of occasions due to Covid restrictions, so the performance seemed like a comforting ‘reset’ on the events of the past few years. My thanks to Jill Henderson-Wild and other choir members who made me feel very welcome on the occasion! Click on the video above to hear the final result.
I am delighted to announce that I have won 1st place in the Manchester Chorale 40th Anniversary Competition – £1000! The competition was judged anonymously and my piece ‘When Voices Rise’ was chosen to help the choir celebrate their 40th anniversary year. The piece will be performed throughout their season next year so I will be looking forward to hearing it then! Congratulations to Martin Neill and Lydia Jane Pugh who also had pieces selected, looking forward to hearing their pieces too. I will update you when I have more information regarding performance dates.
