WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT WORKING AT NECOM?
I love being a part of the team in which we all share a desire to support and grow music-making in Armidale so that our town continues to be a rich, dynamic musical regional town for the benefit of all.
YOUR EARLIEST MUSICAL MEMORY IS
Playing in Sutherland Shire Brass Band with my Dad.
WHAT IS ONE MEMORY THAT STANDS OUT AS A HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR CAREER SO FAR?
Playing on the stage of the Royal Albert Hall at the British National Championships with a Championship section Brass Band and coming away with an amazing result.
IF YOU COULD ONLY KEEP ONE PIECE OF MUSIC IN YOUR COLLECTION, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Mahler 2. I am constantly amazed that something so profound has come from the mind of a mortal. The finale always moves me emotionally and is an exemplar of everything I love about orchestral writing and playing.
