Shobana Jeyasingh Dance / I Fagiolini – UK / Sadler’s Wells Tour 2022 – I am currently working with SJD and Robert Hollingworth on an exciting new dance production for next year. Monteverdi’s ‘Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda’ opens the work, followed by a new work by Kareem Roustom. This has already opened up exciting new avenues such as arabic tunings and rhythms, and getting to know my way round electronics more intimately! https://www.shobanajeyasingh.co.ukhttps://www.ifagiolini.comhttp://www.kr-music.comhttp://edlyon.info
English Touring Opera Spring 2021 – Our plan is for a UK tour from April to May of Handel’s Amadigi with Jonathan Peter Kenny conducting a stunning piece which he has performed countless times, worldwide as a counter tenor. We very much hope this can go ahead in these difficult times. https://englishtouringopera.org.uk
Guildhall ‘Leaders on Stage’ course in Mentoring and Coaching… In October/November 2020 I took part in a short course on mentoring and coaching from a leadership perspective. Participants ranged from leaders of orchestras and section principles to managers. It was an amazing insight into new ways of thinking and working with others and I am really excited to see how this infiltrates my work and to help be a part of a changing atmosphere within the music profession. I will be taking this work further with RNCM students in the spring to gain my ECMM qualification and making my first steps into the field.
