Leeds Lieder+

Last Saturday, Rommi Smith and I joined Ian Duhig, Joanne Brandon, David Tait, Adham Smart and Shamshad Khan at the Leeds Leider+ Composers & Poets Forum. This wide-ranging army of poets has teamed up with composers such as Nikki Franklin, Edward Bell and Ella Jarmin-Pinto to produce fusions of classical music and poetry. I always said I had class (and no one believed me!). Somehow I also agreed to perform my own poem, unlike most of the collaborators, who will be drawing in classically-trained singers. But don't expect any operatics from me . . .
