Well, I’m coming to the end of my tour with Five TV’s production of My First Carol Concert. Fantastic production; I have been to Manchester Bridgewater Hall, Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow, Birmingham Symphony Hall to name but a few and have conducted the British Philharmonic Orchestra and the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in this concert that I also co-presented. Great fun!
Providing lively, entertaining orchestral concerts like these to such a young audience is a vital way to get children into music that doesn't always involve a loud drum-beat. Plus, speaking on stage to Peppa Pig is rather a cool thing to do!
There is a very nice little interview with yours-truly here.
