As the new AYO conductor, it has been a great pleasure to meet and work with such a talented group of young musicians. We have had a great term so far and are playing some fantastic and exciting music.
Sawtell greeted AYO with sunshine and warm weather, everyone made the most of the weather and enjoyed everything on offer, including bioluminescence in the waves!
We welcomed a guest conductor, Ben Castle from Melbourne whose energy and enthusiasm was infectious. We refined and improved our garden party repertoire, including some Brahms, Shostakovich and Gershwin. We all took our first steps into the world of Contemporary Australian music with RPM by Hindson - an exciting depiction of a speeding car which is a challenge to perform.
We are hoping for fine weather for our annual garden party on Sunday 2nd April at Chevy Chase!
