Thanks to those who came to watch QUMS and the Sinfonia of St Andrew’s last weekend. Here’s the first movement of the Cherubini Requiem in C minor.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the Queensland University Music Society for having me back to conduct them, and for the Sinfonia of St Andrew’s for working with QUMS to make this performance possible. Finally, I’d like to thank 4MBS for taking an interest in our performance, and for coming and recording the concert.

Thank you to those of you who voted for me in the recent poll for the 4MBS Treasured Queensland Classical Musician/Group. The poll closed last Friday, and I appreciated those of you who took the time to vote.
Tune in to “My Musical Journey” on 4MBS Classic FM next Saturday, the 21st of October, from 8.10am to find out who the top five winners. This is also a special day as I’ll be conducting the Sinfonia of St Andrew’s and the Queensland University Music Society in selections from Weber’s Der Freischütz, and Cherubini’s moving Requiem in C minor.
Thanks again, and hopefully I’ll see you soon.

I’m looking very much forward to my next concert, which is once again with the Queensland University Misic Society (QUMS) choir, and the Sinfonia of St Andrew’s. Last year I had the pleasure of conducting both for their performance of Haydn’s Harmoniemesse, and this year the choir will be accompanied by the orchestra for a performance of Cherubini’s Requiem No.1 in C minor, celebrating 200 year’s since the work’s first performance.
I’ll also be giving a pre-concert talk about the Requiem, which has an interesting story behind it. We’d love to see you at St Andrew’s Uniting on the evening of Saturday, the 21st of October. In the meantime, please enjoy this excerpt from last year’s QUMS/Sinfonia performance of the Harmoniemesse.
