I thought It was about time for an update; A busy summer involved coaching on NCO Main Orchestra at Rossall School in Lancashire, with a fantastic final concert in Preston Guildhall.
This was followed by my own Wind Chamber Music Course in Longcommon, Surrey, where we had two concerts and a resident string quartet for two days, coached by Hilary Sturt, and a great masterclass with Chris Richards from the LSO. We had 17 clarinettists on the course, all generously hosted by the Melville family.
Also I have just finished a fantastic run of first performances with [UNIT] with Bill Vine and Dan Tombs in the Old Shoe Factory in Norwich. do visit http://www.unitunit.org to find out more about this great project. also here is a video trailer. click here for unit trailer
