Alastair Penman in his own words...

Describe yourself in 3 words:
Massive sax geek
Who do you usually perform with?
For recitals, I usually perform alone with a host of electronics. Aside from solo work, I play regularly with the Borealis Saxophone Quartet and with various chamber, jazz and large ensembles.

What has been a performance highlight in your career so far?
There are too many to choose from, but a recent highlight has to be performing live on the Serbian TV show “Good Morning Belgrade” with the Borealis Saxophone Quartet whilst touring our debut album The North.  Aside from the performance, the interview provided some comedy gold as certain comments were lost in translation; we’d never before been asked if Lisa Simpson was the sax player with Rod Stewart…!

Back in December....
We held a highly successful workshop for CMF Artists on marketing, websites and social media, kindly hosted in the offices of Aberdeen Asset Management. Talks on particular topics were followed by one-on-one discussions with speakers from a variety of organisations including Classic FM, London Symphony Orchestra, Barbican, KD Schmid and Aberdeen Asset Management.

And our CMF Artists brought Christmas cheer and music into offices including Coutts and Nomura (in photo)!
