I was chosen to compose a new song to be printed in the new issue of the „Protestant Hymn Book“ (Evangelisches Gesangbuch). It is a great honor to become a member of this cultural legacy.
Today, I presented it to 80 cantors. The lyrics are by Christian Lehnert.

Tomorrow sees the premiere of my new piece for the Lithuanian dance company PADI DAPI FISH. It is composed for electronics and 4 celli. Choreographer Agnija Seiko created a beautiful dance piece around the story of “Peter Pan”.
We have had an astonishing year here at Manchester Camerata. Our superb orchestra, helmed by Music Director Gábor Takács-Nagy, have cemented their position as one of the best in the world, as champions of Classical Music and as master collaborators.
We have attracted world class artists such as @Hugo Ticciati, Sven Helbig, Aziz Ibrahim and AMC Gospel Choir to create some truly unique shows this year, each time introducing ourselves to a new and diverse audience.
We also found time to open the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury with Hacienda Classical!
As well as the performance high points, we have also continued our world first PhD research measuring the impact of music therapy on dementia and have been pioneering health and wellbeing work in Japan.
We have got so many more exciting plans in the pipeline and we hope you join us in 2018 as we reach new heights.
If you’d like to start the New Year with us, then you can - at The Bridgewater Hall for our Viennese Gala. We’ll see you there.
