In 1999 Gerard collaborated with the Soweto String Quartet for a special performance in Johannesburg sponsored by the British Council. The British Council have sent Gerard to perform in Korea, Indonesia, South Africa, Azerbaijan and Gerard also performed at the opening of their new building in Berlin.....since closed!
