I am honored to have been invited to present our finest musicians at the prestigious Harrogate International Festivals in early July 2014. In addition to the combined literature, there will be great opportunities for exchanges and local cultural immersion in Harrogate for your ensemble.
The Festival starts in London with our rehearsals, sightseeing and individual concerts, in addition to the gala concert which we hope to stage at the magnificent Central Westminster Hall. We will explore this great city together as we make music on a scale seldom heard over there.
This is my 3rd festival with KI. In 2008 I was commissioned by KI to write Angels in the Architecture in celebration of the festival being staged at the Sydney Opera house and in 2011 I was equally honored to lead 220 musicians in Rome to a stunning finale rendition of Vesuvius.
Festivals such as this are extraordinary opportunities to
- perform individually in stunning venues
- or bring a smaller number of performers and just enjoy all of the combined performance activities
- feel the intensity and camaraderie of joining with other musicians in a bigger setting
- give me a unique chance to share my music more intimately with your players.
Please be in touch with me if you would like to cover any of the musical issues and with KIconcerts for any information on the practical arrangements.
