**Alaskan conductor, Cayenna Ponchione, will conduct the Orchestra of St John’s in the world premiere of Nicola LeFanu’s newest work for mezzo-soprano and chamber orchestra, May Rain. LeFanu was commissioned by Cayenna Ponchione and Graeme Bailey as part of Ponchione’s on-going project Water-Culture: Women’s Work(s), an initiative which works to raise awareness about global water scarcity through the commissioning and performance of new works by women composers and writers. Mezzo-soprano, Charlotte Tetley, will perform LeFanu’s composition alongside previous Water-Culture: Women’s Work(s) commissions by Kate Whitley, Rachel Lockwood and Solfa Carlile.  May Rain is a setting of Kerry Hardie’s poem of the same name and will be performed in the presence of the composer, honouring LeFanu’s 70th birthday year.
