Leave a comment

Sheffield’s music scene is all of a buzz lately with the launch of the Classical Sheffield Festival of Music website. http://www.classicalweekend.com

I am currently working on a spatialised, site-specific piece for one of the Platform 4 ‘Pop Up’ performances in the Winter Gardens on Saturday 24th. http://www.classicalweekend.com/event/pop-up-performances-1

There will be another chance to hear my ‘Lament’ performed by Charlie Hardwick in the Platform 4 concert in the Cathedral, also on 24th. http://www.classicalweekend.com/event/made-in-sheffield-new-music

Platform 4 are joining up with Manchester Ensemble, Sounds of the Engine House, to perform a selection of Minimalist masterworks as part of the University of Sheffield concert series on Sunday 25th in Firth Hall. http://www.classicalweekend.com/event/new-york-counterpoint

Tickets are available now. See website for details…
