New website spotlights the international success of Christopher Norton
Boosey & Hawkes is delighted to announce the launch of the official web site dedicated to the music of Christopher Norton, composer, arranger, educationalist, producer, and creator of the internationally successful Microjazz series.
www.christophernorton.com offers an environment that allows musicians an exclusive in-depth look at this hugely successful body of music, including sound clips, downloadable sheet music and a guide to forthcoming workshops and events where they can meet the composer in person.
The website, which will be regularly updated with new features and news, offers a unique opportunity for students to ask the composer himself everything they always wanted to know about the music they are learning, as well as a forum where they can swap tips and tricks, or post reviews of their own experiences of playing Christopher Norton’s music!
Christopher Norton is best known for the world-famous Microjazz and Microstyles series, which have expanded over more than 20 years to become the biggest selling music series for Boosey & Hawkes, with over a million sales to date. Universally regarded as the leader in his field, he has written stage musicals, ballet scores, piano music, popular songs and orchestral music as well as jingles and signature tunes for TV and radio. He has lectured all over the world on aspects of his work, and has also found time to produce huge numbers of albums for the gospel market, with releases worldwide selling in excess of 1,000,000 units.
“It is, of course, testimony to the brilliance of Norton that it is now unimaginable to have a festival competition without a Norton piece in it.”
