OCA’s Carla Rees, Programme Leader for Music has had a busy summer.
She performed at festivals in Costa Rica, America and Japan, in both solo and ensemble concerts.
My piccolo piece, Nightsong was also performed in Costa Rica by Austrian piccolo virtuoso Milica Milojevic-Bogdanovic, and a number of my arrangements were also performed.
My ensemble, rarescale, performed the premiere of Michael Oliva’s new work, Passacglia, for low flutes, bass clarinet and electronics in London on 16 July. I also performed the concert premiere of Michael Cryne’s In Cloud Light for alto flute and electronics
