I just got word that I will be spending the last week of March in Amsterdam working with the Metropole Orchestra, conducted by Vince Mendoza. I will be in Amsterdam from March 22nd through April 1st with a concert on the 28th featuring some of my original music and arrangements for studio orchestra.

Renowned for its wide-ranging repertoire, the Metropole Orchestra performs chansons, cabaret as well as top-of-the-pops and film scores.
