New Year and a new tour

I’m currently in the planning stages of our next tour and this is an exciting time for me because it means I get to read all of the wonderful feedback we’ve had from previous concerts, looking through suggestions for what our audiences like to listen to and start preparing our program for the coming autumn season – which means alot of new musical arrangements.

Already established is that I’m going to be delving into some works by Strauss and Puccini which will include such beautiful classics as Skater’s Waltz, Intermezzo (from Cavalleria Rusticana) and Roses From The South.  New this season will be Fordante’s first foray into the world of Operatic music so turning popular songs that are usually sung, into arrangements for the Fordante line-up will be an challenging prospect.  But it’s something I’m rather looking forward to creating nevertheless.
