Congratulations on setting up and producing Orchestra One so well. The entire process of working with the two of you has been fantastic and inspiring right from the moment we met at the Barbican. Your shared vision, pro-active creative energy and apparent effortless organisational prowess has been genuinely inspiring throughout. I’m sure that for you two, these sorts of things are second nature but I can assure you, I rarely encounter such a level of care, understanding and support in any area of work with which I’m engaged.
