Experience Counts

The Nottingham Symphonic Wind Orchestra performed in Derby Cathedral on Saturday 12th February in a milestone concert which proved the experience and composure that this group is rapidly developing.

I have conducted concerts with my long standing groups in which I felt that I could interpret and mould the music in real time in order to create, for the listener and for the musician, a meaningful and artistic journey. In order to do this I need to trust my players and I need them to be totally responsive and confident.

On Saturday the orchestra made that sort of experience possible and we performed the music in a meaningful and engaging way.

The concert was well received and the audience were clearly moved at times.

From the point of view of the musicians? Well, they simply won't want to accept anything less in future!

From my point of view? Brilliant!!!
