Debut solo album.
The recording of a debut album of original songs is now close to completion.
Symphony orchestras, drums and guitars etc. are noticeably absent in a “stripped down” collection of very personal songs.
The master vocals and mixing remain to be signed off and the tracks will then be streamed on the website.
There is a good chance that the Cantata KM-C: (The Nuremberg Cantata) – a work commissioned for the Arundel Festival of 2010 and dedicated to the fallen aircrew of WW2 Bomber Command – may receive a performance on 13th November, Remembrance Sunday. Details of venue etc. tbc.
Royal Academy of Music
October 16th will see the first ever reunion of ex Royal Academy of Music students who studied there between 1960 and 1970.
Together with Anne Collis (MD of The National Symphony Orchestra), composer Paul Patterson and the Alumni dept. of the Royal Academy of Music, Dee has been actively engaged in helping plan and organise the reunion.
The 60’s has long proved to have been a vintage decade. Sir John Tavener, Michael Nyman, Paul Patterson, David Cullen, Philip Langridge and Sheila Armstrong were among the many other highly gifted musicians who studied at The RAM during this decade.
The interest shown in the reunion was both immediate and enthusiastic; an attendance of more than 200 ex students is expected.
Pics and report will be added in the blog and twitter following the event.
