String arranging Bonanza

I just had two great gigs in Preston and Bradford with Razwan Sarvar’s Bollywood masterpiece….a twenty piece orchestra with dancers, for which I had to write 23 string arrangements. I am now about to start working on some string arranging for Paul Heaton, for the production of ‘The 8th’ at the Barbican and Lowry Centre. Can’t wait.
