It’s been a real treat arranging Cool Yule for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Youth Chorus. The really catchy song made famous by Louis Armstrong proved to be an audience favourite at the performances thanks to the choir’s brilliant singing and the orchestra’s stylish accompaniment. Thank you Simon Halsey and Julian Watkins for the commission and thank you Will and Jack for all the help getting the orchestral parts organised so effortlessly. Looking forward to next Christmas…!
