This winter has been a frantic one for me full of more variety of music than ever! The ballet kept me occupied with performances of ‘The Three Musketeers’ and ‘The Nutcracker’ with both Northern Ballet and the English National Ballet companies. High on Heels have also been busy with a series of performances for Selfridges across the UK as well as a trip to Austria to play for the football team Sturm Graz. Other fun gigs include recording Queen’s greatest hits with Keane’s Tom Chaplin for BBC Radio 2’s ‘Friday Night is Music Night’ and showcasing my drama GCSE level acting alongside Usain Bolt (and the rest of the orchestra…) for a new Virgin Media advert! I performed some of the best UK garage covers with the London Remixed Orchestra for the Remixed Festival at Remix in Shoreditch and also really enjoyed playing for the beautiful WW2 musical ‘The Lightning Road’ at St Paul’s, Covent Garden.
It really has been a completely bonkers mixed bag but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it! I will leave you with this video of ‘It doesn’t matter anymore’ which I played for with The Bluejays to the commemorate the 60th anniversary of Buddy Holly’s death.
