October 2012: This drawing won the Arqadia Award for a Highly Commended Work on the Theme of Music at DRAW 13, the Annual Open Exhibition of the Society of Graphic Fine Art in 2013 in London.

I drew the orchestra with my Moleskine sketchbook on my lap: Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor and Mahler's Symphony no. 5 at the Royal Festival Hall, with Juraj Valčuha as conductor and Renaud Capuçon as soloist.
