Emma leads the Blue Planet Orchestra at the Barbican.

Emma is thrilled to be leading the Blue Planet Orchestra in the London premiere of a new choral symphony by composer and pianist Roland Perrin, as part of the London Jazz Festival in its 25th edition.
Inspired by the Amazon River and region – its topography, its multitude of flora and fauna, the mystery of its remote tribes and the experiences of the different people arriving from afar – Rio Amazonas is also an inner reflection on our primal selves; symphonic architecture realised by jazz trio, massed choirs and string orchestra.
Barbican Hall, 12th November - 15:00.
