Dew Falling…Torrent Flowing

A new soprano saxophone sonata written by Australian PhD candidate Lorenzo Alvaro will be premiered at Melba Hall on Tuesday 11th September. Dedicated to the people affected by the Queensland floods of 2011 it features two outer movements of lyrical beauty and a longer 2nd movement that gives both the piano and saxophone moments to shine. I'll be performing it with Amir Farid on piano and our rehearsals so far have been really exciting. Come along and support some new Australian music.

Before Australian Idol, X Factor and a host of other shows, there was Fame. Set in a New York high school for the performing arts it charts the progress of a group of new students from a range of backgrounds and with a variety of talents. A really fun reed book to play, I'm thinking of investing in one of these to hold the 5 instruments! Come and see Loreto College's production of Fame: 

Friday July 27th at 7:30pm, Saturday July 28th at 1:00pm & 7:30pm

After recently reading Foer's Moonwalking with Einstein I thought I would start increasing my memorisation skills. Currently I'm learning a line a day of Andy Scott's KBM for an upcoming performance in July and I will write an article on the whole process at the end. If you have had any experience with memorising music I'd love to hear about it. Send me a note via the contact page.
