I'm pleased that Celia's toyshop has been selected to be presented at the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra's Composers' Day, with Kokoro and Mark-Anthony Turnage. Kokoro workshopped two of the pieces from the suite in 2015, and I'm delighted to be returning to Bournemouth to workshop 2 more of the pieces.
The BSO’s biennial Composers’ Day is set to return in 2017 on Saturday 18 February for an engaging day of composition workshops, discussions and networking. Following a nationwide call for scores, the successful works which will be performed and discussed in workshops on the day have been chosen by a selection panel led by Mark-Anthony Turnage, the lead composer for the 2017 programme. As a composer of truly international stature, Turnage is one of the most relevant communicators and creators today and has worked with high profile names including Bernard Haitink, Sir Simon Rattle and English National Opera. His works are renowned for their fusion of popular and serious culture, and their unflinching portrayal of the realities of modern life.
