What were they thinking? Whose idea WAS this, anyway??

Oh, that was mine.

This Sunday I get to perform a new piece of mine called In The Beginning. It’s for SATB choir and piano. I’m playing piano, and My friend Simon gets to conduct. The Lambrick Park Church congregation gets to listen, in both the morning and the evening services.

The photo shows one of the tricky lines I’m working on at the piano. If you’re there you’ll get to see me battle my own wits, accompanist style, while the choir sings beautifully. Excited!
