  1. Greetings from the UK.

    Pursuant to my purpose – explained below – please can you give me names, job titles and email addresses of decision-makers in Erbil and Sulaymaniyah? Briefly – the expanded facts behind my enquiry are lengthy – I’m interested in exploring the possibilities of presenting English-language vocal recitals in the region (hoepfully partnered by a local piano accompanist) in 2017. I’m a London based light baritone. The inspiration for this perhaps crazy idea via a source you may or may not know, viz a Scottish conductor by the name of Paul MacAlindin who in 2008, against all the odds, formed The Iraqi Youth Orchestra. However, personally I’m no longer a youth – far from it!

    I’d appreciate any and all info you might be able to provide, please. My thanks in advance.

    With cordial good wishes.
