Upcoming composition projects
Richard has been accepted onto Psappha's 'Composing for...' scheme. Over the next year, he will benefit from direct contact with Psappha's French Horn player Andrew Budden, writing a new solo piece for him for performance in 2018. The performance will be recorded and will be available on Psappha's Youtube and Soundcloud channels.
In addition to this, his choral setting of Lay a garland has been chosen for BASCA's workshop with the BBC Singers. The workshop, led by Master of the Queen's Music Judith Weir CBE, will take place in October at the BBC's Maida Vale Studios.
He has also recently been awarded Associate Membership of the London Symphony Orchestra's Soundhub scheme.
