Musical Madness – Pit Musician

Another week of musical madness! Westside Story is over and done with and was a huge success thanks to the incredibly talented young cast and a dedicated team of crew and musicians! Each night sold over 1000 seats in the beautiful Palace Theatre – Manchester and the chorus managed to receive a standing ovation from the audience every night. Special thanks to our MD Paul Lawton for his never ending enthusiasm and David McNeill for his inspired direction of the cast. Also thanks to the sound team who expertly balanced the orchestra and cast out in the theatre. I can honestly say this is the best youth production I’ve seen and all done in just 2 weeks of rehearsals! Its been a total pleasure for me to play alongside other professional musicians on such an exciting score, role on Legally Blonde next week!

Final evening playing My Fair Lady @stpaulsschmusic tonight. Been a fab production, cast and band almost entirely made from super talented students! 🌟 Tomorrow a concert of Beethoven and Mozart with @BPO_orchestra!
