This Spring I’ve been back on the road with Northern Ballet in their production of ‘Victoria’ with weeks in Sadler's Wells, Leicester, Milton Keynes, Cardiff and Leeds. Super fans can see it in cinemas on 25th June! I have been further revelling in the comfy, no heels, glasses-wearing glory of pit life depping for the UK Tour of the epic ‘Les Misérables’ at the Birmingham Hippodrome.
On the events front I have been fortunate enough to travel (albeit fleetingly!) to Berlin, Antibes, Milan and Lisbon. I now consider myself expert at sleeping on planes. I was featured (not quite on the cover of/page 67493206402) in Brides Magazine on behalf of Tie the Note and was awarded ‘Best Electric Violinist 2019’ at the SME UK Enterprise Awards.
On the artists front I performed with the London Metropolitan Orchestra in an interesting performance with Japanese Taiko drummer Joji Hirota and in a string quartet with singer/songwriter Rhys Lewis for a video for Vevo. But most significantly I played for a performance with string mega royalty Clean Bandit! Having been a huge admirer of their music/gratefully paid my rent with performances of ‘Rather Be’ at a billion bar mitzvahs for many years, this was probably the most exciting gig of my life. It was a massive honour to work with them.
