Classical Uproar at Leeds International Festival gets closer!

Here with the Classical Uproar team at the final rehearsal near Chester yesterday.

It was the first time we all met Tameka Jackson and immediately fell in love with her fabulous singing – she is so much fun to rehearse with!

We can’t wait for the Classical Uproar gig at the Festival at Millenium Square in Leeds on the 28th April – hope to see you all there!

Two days of brilliance at 80hz Studio in Manchester

I have to say that I am absolutely buzzing from conducting two days of magnificent Brass playing from the Session players recording the ‘Incredibles’ computer game soundtrack. I think all of us involved will always remember how amazing it was working through the insanely brilliant scores written by Simon Withenshaw. Many thanks go to George Atkins at 80hz Studios and his remarkable team for looking after us so well.

Truly outstanding…

RNCM Session Orchestra

Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve posted – the reason being that there have been an incredible amount of things happening behind the scenes at SR Music and the Skaparis Collective.

The Skaparis Orchestra’s UK Tour has been postponed due to some very  exciting developments in December 2017 and it’s now the focus of all my energy and attention towards what may be a much bigger tour in November of this year.

This isn’t the only development, and I will have some great news soon in relation to my collaboration with the Producer and Film Score composer Simon Withenshaw, who is currently working for TT Games, a subsidiary of Warner Brothers.

Plans are also being laid for more collaborations with the amazing violinist Miriam Davis, Film maker and Producer Carl Whitely and I’m starting to work at the Royal Northern College of Music with the RNCM Session Orchestra.

News will be coming in thick and fast, so I’ll be updating you all as quick as my fingers will keep up!
