Look what just appeared in my news feed…

Les Neish will now be in the southern hemisphere, but before he left, he found time to appear in the 4 bars rest news, which you can find here. We are really pleased that Les has been able to fit the Commonwealth Resounds tour into Perth as his performance at the Royal Over-Seas League Pre CHoGM Gala Concert a few weeks ago was absolutely stunning and we cant wait to work with him again.

Les’ full tour schedule can be found here.

Along with Les, the two schools are joined by two other incredible soloists Yellian He on Cello and Cecilia De Mari on the Harp.

In just a week today the two schools Chethams and Purcell will be flying out to Perth. The trip is starting look very close!!
