Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra: Australian Composers School

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.
