Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra: Australian Composers School

Posted by

I’ve been extremely fortunate this week to be working with the TSO and tutors Paul Stanhope, Jessica Wells, and Maria Grenfell, and TSO assistant conductor Elena Schwarz.

Four students from across Australia were selected to take part in the week-long program (Samantha Wolf, Alex Turley, and Adam Brook) in which we rehearsed our own pieces, a song arrangement, and a piano orchestration.

The week concluded with a concert of the original works and the orchestrated suite of Schumann’s Papillons. An ABC radio interview about the week can be found here and here.

Flugelhorn Concerto selected for 2018 National Competition

Posted by

I am very chuffed to announce that the 3rd movement from my Flugelhorn Concerto has been selected as the work for open solo at the 2018 Australian National Band Championship, which will be held in Melbourne.

 

For anyone who is planning to play this work please note the following amendments that should be noted at the beginning of your first edition:

  • Style markings throughout the work are specific to each instrument part e.g Mvt 1, bar 1 the piano plays ‘boldly’ while the flugelhorn plays ‘mysteriously’.
  • Mvt 1: The flugelhorn part is written for a B flat flugelhorn. Disregard any differing key information in the piano part.
  • Mvt 2: The repeat from bar 11-20 is not indicated in the piano part, and is optional.

My Fair Lady

I’ve been having a great time playing second trumpet in the Melbourne season of My Fair Lady, directed by Dame Julie Andrews. It’s also been an exciting opportunity to cover first trumpet for a few weeks of the run. A wonderful show- on until the end of July, ’17. Come check it out!
