Three performances of Silver Rose, one of a work written over ten years ago, an education project by a river and a premiere at a zoo all made up a diverse but very enjoyable June series of performances - even including three days in a row!

The month started with a performance of Somewhere Unknown, written in 2005 as part of Liz's PhD, at St Mary's Church, Berkeley, by local Thornbury Orchestra. Then followed two performances of Silver Rose by Lydbrook Band, conductor Ian Holmes, beginning with a new soprano version (Donna Lennard) at Lydbrook Church Festival, followed by Stroud Subscription Rooms with narrator Brian Jackson. This was closely followed by Birmingham Conservatoire Band, conductor Ian Porthouse, at St Paul's Church, Birmingham, with Harrison Knights narrating. The following day saw the culmination of the Worcester education project Rivers of Song with four new songs alongside the River Severn and Worcester Cathedral, culminating with the premiere of City Bridges, words by Jennifer Henderson, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Bristol-Bordeaux-Hannover twinning at Bristol Zoo.
