Requiem – Crowdfunder

I'm excited to be curating a concert taking place in June this year, to include the first performance of my Requiem – marking 100 years since the end of the First World War.

The Requiem will set a combination of the traditional Latin text and new poetry by Gillian Clarke, National Poet of Wales and recipient of The Queen's Medal for Poetry. It will feature 2 phenomenal soloists: cellist Laura van der Heijden and tenor Nicky Spence. The concert will also include amazing choral music by MacMillan, Tavener, Parry and Purcell, and the whole event is in support of The Prince's Foundation for Children and the Arts.

A project like this brings with it significant costs! In order to pull it off, I've started a Kickstarter to raise funds for venue costs, artist fees and music hire, with some great rewards in exchange for kind support! Do have a look at the page to find out more! I'd be so grateful for any support you might be able to offer – I hope that it can be a really special musical and commemorative event in this centenary year. Just follow this link for more info:
