The last week of January I’ll be going to Nancy, a lovely town about 170 miles north-east of Paris at the invitation of my French musician friend Jerôme Didelot.
Jerôme has organised a symposium and concert called “Symphopop” all about the way classical music and pop have combined since the 1960s. I’ll be taking part in the symposium, being asked questions in French which I’ll then answer in English, and later singing at the evening concert backed by an orchestra. There’ll be about 6 other vocalists singing various songs that have significantly featured orchestral instruments and I’ve been asked to do Eleanor Rigby, She’s Leaving Home, God Only Knows and Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime.
Bloody amazing! I hope they film it.
