Steel City Strings will dust off two short works by Andrew Ford for their first concerts of 2021. Both pieces were commissioned by the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Blues Poles as part of Manhattan Epiphanies, Bright Shiners for a national tour with Pekka Kuusisto in 2009. Individual pieces in Manhattan Epiphanies have subsequently been been taken up by other orchestras in Australia; Bright Shiners was most recently played by the Hong Kong Sinfonietta (with James Cuddeford) and the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, again with Kuusisto. Steel City Strings will play the works in concerts in the NSW Southern Highlands and South Coast.
