The Fairy Queen - Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment - London

I performed in an educational concert with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment on Wednesday 6th June 2018 at Conway Hall in London. The project was based around Purcell’s Fairy Queen and it featured music composed by James Redwood. The additional music had been specially composed to allow for musical interaction with the Key Stage 2 students. The students sang and played instruments with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and they followed a musical story, dramatically acted and sung by Kirsty Hopkins (Soprano) and Johnny Herford (Bass). The students were very much involved in the concert and it is always a pleasure to be involved in these uplifting and inspiring outreach events. I will be taking part in similar events later in June with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, in King’s Lynn, and I am very much looking forward to it!
