It was brilliant to co-adjudicate with Erin Ellenburg for the Open Flugelhorn section at the 2018 Yamaha Australian National Band Championships.
The third movement from my Flugelhorn Concerto was the set piece. It was exciting to hear so many variations of the work, especially given that I’ve only ever performed the work myself and never actually watched a performance.
Congratulations to everyone who performed! Thank you for taking the time to learn quite a challenging work.

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!
