Kandace Springs, Vince Mendoza & Metropole Orkest – Pearls (arr. Niko Seibold)

The MO International Arrangers Workshop is a prestigious gathering for young arrangers from all over the world. Chosen from nearly 100 applicants the eight participants are asked to deliver one arrangement a month prior to the workshop which is to be performed live in the final concert of the workshop.

My commission was to arrange Sade’s “Pearls”, a dark and mysterious song, written in 1992.
