Alumnus Conducts Advert for PlayStation 4

Alumnus Robert Guy has conducted Manchester Camerata in a haunting version of Eurythmics’ Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) for PlayStation 4’s latest advert.

Robert, who graduated in 2012, was recently appointed Conductor of the University of Manchester Chorus and a Tutor in Conducting in its music faculty. He was guest conducting with Camerata when the orchestra – based at the RNCM – was commissioned to provide music for promotion of PlayStation 4’s 2017 game The King: God of War, Spiderman.

He said: ‘Ironically I don’t play computer games and I rarely get chance to go to the cinema, but, nevertheless, I’m thrilled to have worked on such a phenomenal undertaking.’
