Peckham Chamber Orchestra.
I have been a member of the Peckham Chamber Orchestra, a not-for-profit, non-hierarchical, mixed ability community orchestra, since it's inception in 2013. Over the years I have been heavily involved behind the scenes, as well as arranging and conducting for the orchestra.
My pop arrangements include Cher - Believe, DJ Sammy - Heaven, a mashup of Dolly Parton - Jolene and Bjork - Hyperballad, Raye - Black Mascara, Lady Gaga - Chromatica I, Kylie Minogue - Padam Padam and Kate Bush Running Up that Hill. I also arranged and conducted Franz Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 in C-Sharp Minor.
For the 10th anniversary concert I simultaneously conducted and narrated a piece called The Story of PCO. Co-arranged with Hannah Catherine Jones, this is a Frankenstein's monster of 20 pieces previously played by the orchestra.
I absolutely LOVE arranging, rehearsing and conducting with the orchestra and I'm pretty good at it. Need any of that? Book me.
