Having spent 25 years as a full-time orchestral violinist, and orchestra leader, in Germany and in London, I decided to continue playing on a freelance basis in 2002. I also arrange music and produce orchestrations, am Executive Producer of the Mantovani concerts for Barrett Films, in which I also play, and I provide the following ensembles: The Pandora String Quartet, the Pandora Swing Quartet, the Pandora Palm Court Trio, and the Pandora Salon Orchestra. I am director of Pandora-Spectrum Music.

Violinist (Freelance), Arranger & Orchestrator
25 years full-time experience as an orchestral violinist and soloist, 9 years freelance experience. Recordings. Light Music; Chamber Music; Jazz.
Executive Producer, Musical Arranger & Violinist
From January 2007 to January 2007.
Recreated in 2007, by Executive Director Paul Barrett and me, our orchestra, conducted by Robin Stapleton (now called 'The Music of Mantovani Orchestra' for marketing reasons) brings Mantovani's original scores back to life for the listening pleasure of today's audiences. We employ many of the finest musicians in Britain, such as Edward Hession (Accordion), Mike Lovett (Principal Trumpet), Dave Lee (French Horn) and John Bradbury (Leader). To date, three DVDs of our live concerts (presented by the actress Alexandra Bastedo and Radio & TV personality Ed Stewart), and two CDs have been released, and suppliers of these may easily be found via the internet. All of our concerts so far have sold out, and our exposure of Mantovani's music to today's audiences has resulted in several of the original orchestra's recordings being re-released worldwide, both in orignal album form, and as all-new compilations. The success of our concerts has come to be known throughout the world. >>www.barrettfilmsmantovani.com >>www.hallowquest.com/mantiindex.htm >>www.mantovani-orchestra.com >>www.rfsoc.org.uk

Poole Arts Trust Limited
Senior Centre Manager
From September 2002 to September 2011.
Responsible for the overall smooth-running of the largest UK arts centre outside London, providing customer and artist support, and the dissemination of information, and maintenance of health & safety checks, and procedures. Assistant and to the General Manager. Health & Safety Manager. Team Leader responsible for the Stage Door Receptionists, the Ushers, and assisting the co-ordination of the bars, restaurant, and cleaners. Administration responsibilities include the proof-reading of all publications, and translating of German and Dutch into English. Following the centre's troubled existence on the verge of insolvency, my position, among several others, was made redundant in 2011. Two newly-created alternative positions were available to me, but only one was full-time. I did not accept the invitation to an interview for the full-time position, preferring instead to concentrate on a number of private projects, as I did not foresee a sanguine future for the centre, under its new management, who were at that time bereft of formal qualifications in the Arts. My decision has so far proved to be most prudent.
