September 2011 -a month of diverse projects in some unusual venues
4 September 2011

Windsor Castle
It begins with the recording of a new score by the prolific composer, Debbie Wiseman, for the third series of Land Girls.
I'll also be recording at Air Lyndhurst Studios in Hampstead as part of a project of music to be utilised at a later date as incidental music for Film and TV.

The BBC Proms also feature as I have been asked to perform with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the orchestra's contribution to this year's festival. The concert is on Saturday, September 3 with a programme of music by Elgar, Michael Berkeley, Rachmaninoz and Kodaly.

On September 5th I'll be teaming up with John Kenny (trombone) and Simon Limbrick as, in collaboration with the Chamber Orchestra of Anglia, we'll be performing at The Forum, Norwich, some delightful repertoire for trumpet, trombone and percussion. A lunchtime recital will take place at 1pm followed by hourly performances throughout the day.
