Gwilym will be playing a special 20th anniversary concert at Wiltshire Music Centre on 9th December 2017
Gwilym and leading saxophonist Rob Buckland join forces with a classical string quartet to perform original compositions and arrangements inspired by French music and musicians. Drawing on their wide ranging experience as collaborative jazz artists, they will explore links between jazz, improvisation and the music of Debussy, Dutilleux and Ravel.
The musicians will then be joined by a jazz octet with members of the Wiltshire Youth Jazz Orchestra and WMC Chorus to perform festive arrangements to launch the 20th Anniversary in style.
‘Simcock displayed his increased authority and stature by giving every appearance of having the time of his life’ The Guardian
WMC will be inviting audiences and artists to share memories and stories. We will also be looking ahead to the next 20 years and launching a special Fundraising Appeal to support WMC into the next decade. And what better way to launch the celebrations than with their first Nimmo Artist in Residence, Gwilym Simcock.
