“I must admit working with Katie Chatburn – who is the composer and arranger – is wonderful as she just embraces the challenge and always knocks it out of the park.” Yaw Owusu | Playmaker Group

“I first worked with Katie for the Liverpool International Music Festival (LIMF). I’d never embarked on a project with a composer before and didn’t know what to expect. I was a little nervous. Quickly I was truly amazed at her knowledge and attention to detail. The nerves had been replaced with a pure respect and admiration. This increased as the ‘Garage Classical’ entity developed. When you take on tasks and projects this size it’s of paramount importance that everybody knows and executes their part. Katie does this with a brilliant ease. Every time. It’s an absolute please to work with her and the Ignition Orchestra and I look forward to doing so more in the future.DJ Spoony

“I have worked with Katie on two major city wide events – she is a very talented composer and arranger and is able to bring musicians from diverse genres together to produce authentic and meaningful work and weave in contributions from a wide range of artists and communities. I would highly recommend Katie, she is reliable inspiring, focused and a great contributor.” Debra King, Director | Brighter Sound
