Having been accepted into the AYO composition program, along with 3 other composers from Australia, I have been busy writing a work for chamber orchestra to be premiered on the 16th of Jan. Spanning 2 weeks in Adelaide (at the Elder Conservatorium), this intense and fast paced course see us write a work especially for the Australian Youth Orchestra, comprised of both tutors and students, while also receiving daily lessons, seminars and masterclasses with composer Stuart Greenbaum and fellow performers. Since being here I had a chat with Samuel Cottell (words about music student) about writing by hand (see below) and additionally was interviewed on ABC Classic Fm for the intermission between last Saturday’s concerts! Today I heard the first rehearsal of my work, conducted by James Judd and am madly making final additions before the Composition Concert this Friday! A dazed and delirious journey it has been, filled with so much music, many lessons and such amazing talent! http://www.ayo.com.au/content/2015-ayo-national-music-camp-blog-6/gjh3er
