Steven Mackey 
is regarded as one of the leading composers of his generation and has composed for orchestra, chamber ensembles, dance and opera. He blazed a trail in the 1980's and 90's by including the electric guitar and vernacular music influence in his concert music and he regularly performs his own work, including two electric guitar concertos and numerous solo and chamber works.

We are lucky to have him join us on this occasion to play two of his works - Fusion Tune' for cello and electric guitar, performed with renowned SSO cellist Chris Piddy Pidcock & Heavy Light for electric guitar.
