In May 2017 I directed the Hull Freedom Chorus as part of Hull 2017 City of Culture in the Australian Circus company Circa’s outstanding production of Depart.

In June, I then directed a specially-convened Chorus in Blackpool for the Circa production of Depart, produced by Left Coast, in the stunning Stanley Park.

I am currently working with two Choruses and 100 children from 4 primary schools across Calderdale for performances of a brand new People’s Opera Calderland, which will take to the stage in the amazing Piece Hall in Halifax on 29,30 September and 1 October. This is a fantastic project, involving singers, dancers, musicians and performers of all ages – and will be the first event to involve massed singing in the Piece Hall – famous historically for huge singing events – since it reopened.
