Thanks to all the special schools who took part in the Museum of London’s quiet day. We had sensory movement and music based on the beasts of London experience. Horses, lions, eagles, creepy bacteria! running rats! Elephants. And we finished with calming fish.

Thanks to the Children of Hallfields primary school for creating an amazing sculpture and composition. They came up with the phrase ‘someone stole my face’ so we explored the theme of identity and included their current topic Africa. Here’s a short film

Thanks to the Tatton singers and conductor John Powell for a great concert in knutsford. The Vaughan Williams Serenade to music is such a subtle piece with beautiful impressionistic colours. St John the Baptist's church has a fantastic acoustic. It was a pleasure to play with you

Thanks to all the residents and staff at Sunrise Senior living in winchester, for having me in for a bassoon recital. We went on a journey through classical bassoon, orchestral and opera repertoire. Finishing with folk songs and musicals. Everyone was in fine voice!
