I performed new work for cello and live electronics at Richmond Adult College concert in October 2019. A collaboration with U3A writers group at the college, in aid of the Portcullis Trust. The concert Age / less was with Richmond New Music Collective where I was invited to collaborate with the participants on new work exploring the themes of ageing for the concert.
