Once again, the Tavistock Festival has commissioned Andrew and his indefagitable librettist, Prof. Liam Snow, to produce a Cantata for the annual Tavistock Sings Festival Concert in Tavistock Parish Church. This will be a special event as Daedalus & Icarus Opus 157, is the tenth such work, following:
The Tavistock Witch (2004), The Bong Tree (2005), The Pied Piper (2006), Grendel's End (2007), Sir Richard's Cap (2008), Fitzford House (2009), The Blackingstone Ravens (2010), Belinda's Magic Clock (2011) and Class Six in Space (2012).
The composer will be conducting the school choirs of Kelly College, Kelly College Prep, Milton Abbot and Manadon Vale as well as the Kelly Choral Society (a total of some 250 voices) accompanied by Mary Mazur-Park on the piano and an instrumental ensemble of Senior Kelly College musicians. Daedalus will be sung by Mark Perry (tenor), King Minos by Ian Hardy (bass) and Ariadne by Sophie Whitfield (soprano). An unmissable event!
