It's heads down for a busy Autumn 2013 with highlights including Vaughan Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem with David Hill and the Hallé in Leeds Town Hall and a brace of Messiahs with the City of Birmingham Choir and the CBSO in Birmingham's Symphony Hall and Town Hall.
To round off the year, I'm off to Australia to sing Bach's Christmas Oratorio with the Australian Chamber Orchestra on tour down the east coast. Luckily, before departing Alex is performing the same work off-by-heart in London and Cambridge with the baroque collective "Solomon's Knot" so should have some idea how it goes.
2014 also promises to be a good year, with visits to China, Hong Kong, Germany, Spain and France booked in. Let's get cracking.
