May 23, 2014: Andrew has been over to Holland a couple of times in the past month, firstly to do a masterclass for Dutch television with the winners of the Princess Elisabeth Concours - two exceptional young musicians - a violinist aged 11 years (Iris van Nuland) and a cellist aged 10 years (Emma van Schalkwijk) who are going to perform "Oceaan" with Racoon in a new arrangement by Andrew in a concert in Goes, Holland on 25th May in front an audience of 7,500 people, and secondly for the concert itself. He is also currently working on the arrangements for Racoon's new album - due to be recorded soon with the Philharmonia Orchestra..

He has also done another concert with Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel with the Orchestra of the Swan in Manchester at the Bridgewater Hall (on 26th April) - again sold out, and very well received by the capacity audience. They will be doing three more concerts next month - one at the Sage, Gateshead, on June 21st, then two more the following weekend - one at the Royal Albert Hall, London on 28th June, then at Symphony Hall Birmingham on 29th June, all with Andrew conducting the Orchestra and Chamber Choir of the Swan, who are based in Shakespeare's home town of Stratford-upon-Avon.
