Newsletter January 2012

A Very Happy New Year to everyone and a special hello to all those I met while working with Young Voices in Birmingham, Sheffield, London and Dublin. We are really looking forward to continuing with the tour when it arrives at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester in January and then our 4 nights at the 02 Arena in March.

I am also looking forward very much to presenting 4 concerts at the RNCM Festival of Brass which takes place over the weekend of 27th - 29th January and features a stellar line up of brass bands and soloists - don't miss it!

Also not to be missed of course is the annual RNCM Day of Percussion which falls on Sunday 12th February 2012. We've got a real treat in store for percussionists of all ages - legendary British drummer Clem Cattini, international percussion soloist Pedro Carneiro, Principal Percussionist of BBC Philharmonic Orchestra Paul Patrick, virtuoso bodrhan specialist Cormac Byrne, Principal Percussionist of Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Graham Johns and from the USA we are delighted to welcome mallet supremo Arthur Lipner. Plus we have a huge display of trade stands which truly offer something for everyone.

An absolute must for all percussionists! See you there!
