A fantastic world premiere of Peter Edwards’ new piece, Where Dreams Lead on Saturday in tribute to Dr Martin Luther King Jr. The work was commissioned by the Lively Up! Festival as part of their programme to mark the 50th Anniversary of Dr King’s ‘March For Jobs’ (more commonly known as his ‘I Have A Dream’) speech.

Conducted by the orchestra’s music director, Peter Edwards, the musicians gave a stunning account of themselves in the Clore Ballroom at Royal Festival Hall, London in front of a jam-packed audience. Between each movement, Peter spoke of the inspiration for each part of the suite which covered different aspects of Dr King’s life.

Where Dreams Lead is an outstanding piece of work and we hope very much to be able to tour this work extensively in the future.
