Global Accordion Project Orchestra, New Commission - UK

Ian WatsonVideo: Most recent video by GAPO - Horizon composed by Ian Watson

As we approach the final few months of 2020 when soloists, groups and orchestra would be in preparation for final concerts, we are all instead hoping that 2021 will be a much brighter year.

The Global Accordion Project Orchestra (GAPO) started by Ian Watson (picture left - musical director) and Sam Cullen (principal bass player) of the London Accordion Orchestra are ensuring there is one final time in 2020 that we can all come together for the music.

GAPO are commissioning Ian Watson to write a new score for this experience. The piece 'The Challenge of Time' which we can agree, does summarise 2020. It is not the challenge of time signature but will feature some challenging rhythms (but not too challenging).

Commissions are open to be a member of the orchestra (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond). However as it is a busy time of year, you can be a commissioner without recording yourself, and will be mentioned in the final video, and on the printed score.

"It was fantastic to be supported by accordionists from all over the world. I am trying to introduce fresh new music to the accordion orchestra scene and to be supported like that was incredibly humbling!" Ian Watson, October 2020.
