Last night Kathryn's new piece for the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain was premiered at The Sage Gateshead and will be performed again at the Royal Festival Hall, London, on Saturday 14 April. Kathryn describes composing for such a large orchestra as 'being let loose in an amazing sweet shop'! More details can be found on the NYO blog with videos of Kathryn demonstrating the Northumbrian pipes and a tantalising extract of 'Northumbrian Fantasia' in rehearsal, with Charles Hazlewood conducting.
