Ymt:UK are currently travelling around the country auditioning young people for their national 2018 company. I'll be writing a new commission - an installation in the National Army Museum. The YMT young people (who are world class) will perform with the BELFAST ENSEMBLE for 2 evenings in this newly refurbished building in the heart of London's, Chelsea. I'll be composing and directing the work - a contemporary setting of Kipling's long overlooked - and misunderstood - 'Barrack room Ballads' to mark the end of the first world war - 100 years this year.
More details to follow soon - or visit the ymt site at - http://www.youthmusictheatreuk.org/shows/barrack-room-ballads-2018
