Tomorrow, OpSoc, the University of Nottingham's Opera Society will give the first performance of my first opera, Entr'acte which I completed earlier this month. I have been heavily involved in the rehearsals and am thrilled with the performances coming from the cast members - Nottingham is lucky to have such a talented bunch of people and I feel priviledged to be able to work with them. Not to mention those who do all the hard work behind the scenes. Jade Whymark, OpSoc President and Director of the opera has done a sterling job and it's hard to imagine that we've only been working on the production for 6 weeks. Time travels fast.
If you haven't already checked out the PREQUEL, please do and also look out for the official event on Facebook.
That's not all that's been going on. I'm just putting the finishing touches to my setting of John Henry Newman's Lead, kindly Light which will be performed by the St Barnabas Cathedral Schola Cantorum on Sunday 11 December. I'm also looking forward to a workshop with other collegues from Birmingham Conservatoire at a workshop with Rolf Hind next week. Rolf will be having a look at my piece, Photocopying for solo piano.
