There are now 5 composers (me, Phil Tudor, Sam Hilton, Peter Clarke, Joe Travers) who have written brand new pieces for chamber choir and we are now aiming for a 'sharing' (less intimidating than calling it a performance) in February 2017. A complete mish-mash of style...

It's been, like, forever and I've obsessed about Wife Swap (a-ma-zing) and John Oliver (love him) and FLDS documentaries (no words) and most recently, 'Breaking Amish' but it's time I took a listen to something new instead of these distractions.

I spent a happy morning with a former Katterwall vocal student who, since leaving us studied in NZ, appeared in a professional production of Hairspray and is days away from starting an MA in Musical Theatre in London.

Tallis Vocalis is back rehearsing and I'm i.c. the 'old stuff' including:

St John Passion for 8 voices by Jacobus Gallus Carniolus (a.k.a. Jacob(us) Handl, Jacob(us) Händl, Jacob(us) Gallus. This is a man with more names than strictly necessary but, he wrote an interest...

Johanna Basford is a genius and I am a little bit in love with her Lost Ocean postcard series.

Kassia Choir put on a totally rad show in March taking its inspiration from the 70s. I had fun choosing the 70's wallpaper designs to hang and also the 70s graphics for their tops - the absolute best ones came from maths and physics textbooks. Who knew they would be su...

Since my disappearance I have been involved in two great Tallis Vocalis concerts (Tudor Moments: January and A Renaissance Easter Journey: April).

 

The first was rehearsed and conducted by choir member William Chung. It made a nice change to be singing every week and t...

After 18 months of planning I flew to the beautiful island of Jeju, Korea this March to be the Choral Director of a FOBISIA Choral Festival, hosted by Head of Music Jemma Morrell and the North London Collegiate School, Jeju (for those not in the know, FOBISIA is a regi...

I'm not sure how that happened but it's 3 MONTHS since my last post.

 

...OK, maybe I do know how it happened, my brain / life has been resembling this woman's recently BUT I am getting there! There's lots to catch up on. A lot has been happening...
