    Sep 2021

    I'm taking over from Freya Waley-Cohen as the next associate composer at NightMusic, a wonderful concert series at St David's Hall, Cardiff. I've been a few times and I overall love Cardiff having spent time there for a few reasons including the Peter Reynolds Composer Studio with Vale of Glamorgan Festival. I'll be programming a few concerts a year for NightMusic and writing new music for some of them, and I'm v excited for it.More about the series here.
