Guest conductor at NOFA Leeds July 2016

image2Was thrilled to be asked to be guest conductor for NOFA, and even more excited to find I would be conducting their newly-commissioned piece; Triptych three pieces by Nathan Theodoulou and Daniel Dhondy based on the artistic progression of Kandinsky. To an audience of thousands (3 or 4, I’m not sure, but lots!), this wonderful 95-strong youth orchestra performed this new piece with such energy and vigour, the piece received the first standing ovation of the performance – the audience loved it! Well done NOFA for creating such a wondrous music and live art event – and thanks so much for having me along!
