Sorry it has been a while Laefer Fans! We've had a busy few months! Those of you who avidly follow us on the Twittersphere will know what we've been up to but for those of you who don't here is a brief summary:
- We reached the final of the Royal Overseas League Competition where we were awarded the Elias Fawcett Award for Outstanding Ensemble.
- Following on from our concert in November, we've been working with Listenpony to create a live EP from the concert! Artwork and Recordings are now mastered, so watch here for the release date! If you can't wait that long here is a video of us from the concert.
- We're excited to announce that we will be performing in the next NonClassical concert on May 10th curated by composer and saxophonist Charlotte Harding. The concert is New York themed and we will be playing Steve Reich's New York Counterpoint as well as a piece by Charlotte written for our Park Lane Group Concert (see below) called Sub to Street, to Scraping the Sky.
- And last but by no means the least of our endeavours has been preparing for our St John's Smith Square recital on Monday 24th April as part of the Park Lane Group Young Artists Spring Series 2017. If you can't wait until May 10th to hear Charlotte Harding's piece then why not come to the World Premiere! We're also very excited to be giving the World Premiere of Leapfrog by distinguished British composer Giles Swayne, alongside Richard Rodney Bennett's Saxophone Quartet and Felix Mendelssohn's Capriccio.
