Metropole Orchestra Arrangers’ Workshop 2014

2 June, 2014

Callum has just completed the Metropole Orchestra’s 2014 Arrangers’ Workshop. The Metropole Orchestra is one of the world’s leading jazz and pop orchestras, based in Hilversum, Netherlands.

He was selected as one of seven arrangers from around the world to work with the Orchestra, vocal superstar Gregory Porter, and conductor Vince Mendoza, in a week of intensive masterclasses and workshops, culminating in a concert featuring the Orchestra and Gregory in Utrecht.

As part of the course, the orchestra recorded Callum’s arrangement of ‘Lara’s Theme’ from the film Doctor Zhivago. You can listen to that arrangement below.

There are even rumours that Callum conducted the orchestra for part of the concert…
