THSH Jazz Electives Commission

Delighted to have been chosen as composer for the Town Hall Symphony Hall Jazz Electives project. I have composed two pieces, New St. Groove and Be Yourself that will be performed by hundreds of young musicians at Symphony Hall on 14th July 2016.  I will also be working with older pupils at three Birmingham high schools to create another new piece to be performed. High energy full on exciting stuff!!! Here’s a video from the project in 2013.
