The concert was conceived and conducted by Metropole Orkest conductor Jules Buckley.
Tommy has just finished an album for Grammy-nominated, Sony recording artist Stacey Kent here in London, due for release in October 2017, and has contributed some more arrangements for the Metropole Orkest in the Netherlands, for their 'Robeco Summer Night' series at the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam .
In August of 2016 Tommy wrote three arrangements/adaptations for a Prom at London's Royal Albert Hall, featuring the Metropole Orkest, again conducted and conceived by Jules Buckley, celebrating the music of the great composer/arranger/producer, Quincy Jones.
In May 2016, Stacey Kent performed eight of Tommy's charts with Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine, at the L'Auditorium de Bordeaux.
Tommy recently joined the faculty of the Guildhall School of Music, teaching arranging and orchestration on the jazz course.
Other arranging projects have included seven orchestral charts (tracks 1,2,4,5,9,10 and12) for an EMI production music release featuring the songs of composer Alexander Rudd, and academy-award-winning lyricist Don Black.
