Well, folks. Only a few weeks to go before I jet off to the USA to conduct the WORLD PREMIERE of my maiden test piece, Boadicea, Queen of the Iceni. The Houston Brass Band having been rehearsing hard at the piece since January, and have kindly invited me over the pond to conduct the maiden performance. Are there any tMPers from that part of the world who'll be able to get to Houston for the 6th June? I hope so. Meeting tMPers is good - meeting international tMPers will be even better! PM me for details.
