After month's of planning and preparation of all the arrangements we finally got down delivering a performance of Joni Mitchell's Hejira at the Woman of the World festival at the Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall. It was a joy to work with our featured singers Lisa Hannigan, Nadine Shah, Emel Mathlouthi and Eska. We also had poet Sabrina Mahfouz reciting her own work that really set the tone for the evening.
The Nu Civilisation Orchestra was joined by Voicelab led by Liz Swain and included a group of singers from women for refugee women.
All in all it was a fantastic night of music and it was a wonderful experience to direct
