Some news!

1. Some lovely funding news for my contemporary quartet The Hermes Experiment:

-we’re amongst the latest recipients of the PRSF Open Fund – in support of our upcoming collaboration with award-winning artist Mira Calix and composer Alex Mills (premiere at Cafe OTO 24 May 2018).

-we’re also delighted to receive a grant from the Help Musicians UK Transmission Fund in support of our residency in France this summer with composer and cellist Zoë Martlew.

2. I’m delighted to announce that pianist Imma Setiadi and I have been selected as one of the Leeds Lieder Young Artists for the Leeds Lieder Festival 2018.
