Geelong Summer Music Camp 2018

I love being involved with this camp each year and I am always amazed by how much is accomplished by the students in such a short time. We have another stellar line-up of conductors including Sean Rankin for the Hood Concert Band, Ingrid Martin (my conducting mentor) for the Galloway Strings and Malcolm John Symphony Orchestra and education superstar and University of Melbourne lecturer Sue Arney with the Gardner Concert Band.

Auditions commence on Sunday 14th Jan at the Geelong College Middle School with rehearsals Monday to Thursday and the amazing final concert in Costa Hall on Friday 19th.

Australian Discovery Orchestra Recording

On the weekend it was exciting to be a part of the ADO’s first recording project: 16 new musical works by talented Broadway composers. I playing the baritone and tenor saxophones, sitting next to my former teacher Lachlan Davidson on alto saxophone from whom I continue to learn so much. Aside from being an amazing experience, the recording sessions were a great reminder of how important the fundamentals are: tone, intonation, accurate rhythm and listening, listening, listening!

I also appreciated being a part of Melbourne’s rich recording heritage at Allan Eaton Studio. This amazing place has been part of the last four decades of great Australian film scores including: The Dressmaker, Red Dog, Babe, Shine, The Sapphires, The Truman Show and many more!

Keep an ear out for the worldwide competition to sing the vocal parts for the CD’s release in 2018.

Afterglow Trailrun

Whilst I have enjoyed working on my 12km this spring, I’ll just be providing the motivational tunes for the diehard runners at this year’s Afterglow Trailrun. Set along some stunning Victorian coastline, the runners will enjoy the sunset views before completing the half marathon in Torquay. Always a great event, you are welcome to come along to cheer the runners on Saturday 25th November at 7pm at the Jarosite Track at Point Addis.
