With everything that’s been happening recently, I can’t quite believe this myself, but I actually wrote a symphonic work in a week flat! It’s called ‘Symphony of Somerset’ – although it’s more of a symphonic suite than a symphony, but I’ll stick with it! It’s based on a selection of Somerset Folk Songs which have been ‘worked on’ on shall we say.
The work is being premiered by Exeter Symphony Orchestra on Saturday 18th March 2023 at Holy Trinity Church in Exmouth, Devon, UK. Exciting stuff! I better have a look at the tuba part….!
