The Arts Council/Artswork commission, organised by the Oxfordshire County Music Service, has involved John writing two concertos, both involving outreach in Oxfordshire schools. John’s Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra will be premiered by Simon Desbruslais and the Oxfordshire County Youth Orchestra at three performances on January 29th 2016, to 1,200 children, at the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford.

The programme also includes new works by Key Stage 3 students from Oxfordshire schools (King Alfreds, Wallingford, and Lord Williams), the produce of collaborative workshops with John over three months.
