So today was the third and final concert conducting the Brisbane City Pops Orchestra. It was also an important date for me personally today, as it was fifteen years ago today that my father-in-law passed away. A lifelong fan of the Aston Villa F.C., I paid tribute to him with pocket kerchiefs, the maroon and light blue of the club, & have to say that there were a few moments during the performance that I thought of him. My thanks to the BCPO’s players for having me back, and thank you to all of the singers who have been involved with our three concerts. It’s been a pleasure making music with you 🌺
