KCYO Concerto for Ivo Neame

I’m so excited to say I’ve been commissioned by the Kent County Youth Orchestra to compose a piece for their fiftieth celebration concert in September. I was in KCYO for many years so it is a great honour to be invited back. I’m going to be writing a concerto for fellow KCYO alumni and amazing jazz pianist Ivo Neame. He is a bit of a monster so I’d better get my best funk on!

The premiere will be in Maidstone on 7th September alongside Britten’s Sea Interludes and Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. No pressure then…
