Awarded Dame Commander of the British Empire in 2007, Evelyn Glennie is the first person in musical history successfully to create and sustain a full-time career as a solo percussionist. As one of the most eclectic and innovative musicians on the scene today she is constantly redefining the goals and expectations of percussion by creating performances of such vitality they almost constitute a new type of performance. She is the leading commissioner of around 170 new works for solo percussion from many of the world’s most eminent composers. As a double GRAMMY® Award winner and BAFTA nominee she is in demand as a composer in her own right and records music for film, television and music library companies. The film Touch the Sound and her enlightening TED speech remain key visual and audio testimonies to her world of sound creation knowledge and understanding. Her most recent film score was Golf in the Kingdom, released in the United States in 2011. With over 86 international awards to date she continues to feed the next generation through advice and guidance. As a consultant she offers prestigious and much sought after masterclasses and lecture demonstrations to all types of instrumentalists. She also gives presentations to the sports world on visualisation techniques.
