Thanks to John Turner, plans had been made for a concert in Stockport in to celebrate my 90th  birthday. The concert was to be repeated a couple of days later at my old school, Cheadle Hulme  School and I had written a little piece for 4 of the students, based on the notes C, B, E flat which in German and continental notation is C, H, Ess. John also arranged for my Oboe and Recorder Sonatas to be performed at the William Alwyn Festival in October. Alas due to Covid 19 these concerts have
all been postponed till 2021.

Netflix are making a biopic about Nacho Cano and the making of his new Musical called Malinche, and he wanted to include me in the film. So Nacho and his team came on the 28 th of August and a film crew of 4 filmed us in my studio and in the garden (which Pam had worked hard to make look its best). It took most of the day and then they were all off to London.

​Keep watching for up and coming concerts during 2019-2020, in  celebration of Peters 90th Birthday!
