The Snows They Melt The Soonest – 17th March

Firstly, the Manchester Camerata workshopped my arrangement of the folk song The Snows they Melt the Soonest yesterday with folksinger Bella Hardy at the RNCM. The workshop was conducted by Eduardo Portal, and judged by composer Howard Skempton (that’s him in the picture perusing my score).

Bella and the Camerata will now play my piece in public on the 17th March at Manchester’s Band On The Wall venue, alongside other folk song arrangements by Stephen Hyde, John Conway, Michael Cutting, Pichpiran Supatravanij and David Futers. The night will also feature a performance of Luciano Berio’s Folk Songs by the Camerata and Rebecca Lea, and a straight folk set by Bella Hardy.

Secondly, a few weeks ago Trio Atem workshopped Seven Face Pictures on the poetry of Caroline Bird. You can now hear a recording of this workshop:
