News, snippets and gig updates from Simone!

Spring 2007
Hello and welcome to my newsletter!

I have had a busy few months with Equivox as we gave several concerts to mark the release of our new CD 'The Time is Now'. I have also been busy with BackBeat particularly with our challenging project for SPNM - 'Riot'. We had a great time working with the fabulous singer Lore Lixemberg and one of our concerts was recorded and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. I have recently had the pleasure of giving the world premiere of Gareth Wood's Percussion Concerto with the excellent National Youth Wind Orchestra of Wales under Nigel Boddice. It is always exciting to play a piece for the first time and it was great fun working with the orchestra and also coaching the percussion team on their residential course as well.

I am looking forward to the next few months - I love the summer! - and hope to see you at one of my concerts soon!
