Young Artist Leo Geyer: New Commission
As part of their summer concert, Wimbledon Symphony Orchestra (WSO) will premiere a new concerto for trumpet (and flugelhorn) written for local trumpeter Imogen Hancock and WSO by Musicians’ Company Yeoman Leo Geyer, one of WSO’s two artistic leaders and conductors.
The title of the concerto, Somewhere In-Between, has been inspired by marshlands in London. The commission represents an exciting opportunity for WSO to broaden its repertoire and to work with the country’s leading young composers and performers.
The concert will take place at St Paul’s Church SW19 6EW at 7.30pm on Saturday 16 June. This year, WSO’s summer concert is an exciting jazz-themed event also featuring Gershwin’s An American In Paris, Gershwin’s Cuban Overture and the dramatic and evocative Danzon 2 by Arturo Márquez made popular by Gustavo Dudamel and El Sistema.
