December 2009

A couple of real out of the ordinary events in the last week - over the weekend I was working in the amazing band playing for the Royal Variety Performance, which featured artists such as Chaka Khan, Anastacia, Lulu, Michael Buble, Mika, Alexandra Burke, Diversity, Bette Midler, Katherine Jenkins, Lady Gaga and many more.


Harrogate Summer Course 2009

Harrogate Saxophone Summer School: Just got back from another great course working with some great people - always a pleasure to meet so many sax players from around the country, coming together for a weeks saxophonic fun!

Colourscape 2009 blue

Played at the Colourscape Festival on Clapham Common in September - what an amazing structure! If you ever see this touring, you should experience it - each cell is saturated in natural light, filtered through the colour of the material of each cell - so you have totally blue rooms, red rooms, and then long corridors moving from one colour to the next, and contemporary music being played live (this time by a group of eight saxophonists) to confuse and stimulate your senses!!!

Woldingham 2009

Just returned from my International Saxophone Summer School in Woldingham - such a beautiful setting, and as always a great group of saxophonists, from all corners of the country, and from all backgrounds. I was joined for the 2nd year running by Dave O'Higgins, working on all things jazz, and Fiona Asbury assisting me all week on the classical course. Check out the info and links on the Summer School tab (sub section of the Educator tab on the menu bar).

Bregenz Opera Festival

Just returned from a week’s tour with Opera North in Bregenz, Austria, at the world famous Bregenz opera Festival.

February 2009

Following on from a hectic 2008, this year finds me straight into the usual variety of gigs. I'm currently working hard towards a couple of Concerto dates: On 28 Feb I'm playing John William's "Escapades" - the concerto version of the soundtrack to the Dreamworks film "Catch Me If You Can" with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra at the Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool.
