    Strike up the Band: The Gershwins in Hollywood The RTÉ Concert Orchestra in concert conducted by John Wilson and soloists Kim Criswell and Matthew Ford.

    It was an honour to conduct a public interview with Dame Julie Andrews at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre  as part of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival. Dame Julie is an incredibly warm generous lady. The type of person who invites you to have a cup of tea and a chat in her dressing room after the interview! She seemed genuinely touched by the reception she received in Dublin and was delighted to be awarded a Volta award from President Higgins before she left us. Photo credit: Frances Marshall
