Well it’s been an amazing day. The Ady Ensemble members (Adyophiles) gave their all today for the final day of our Brahms Recording Project, which we’ve been rehearsing over this last week for today’s recording session.

A lifelong fan of the Aston Villa F.C., I paid tribute to him with pocket kerchiefs, the maroon and […]

Another great audience turnout for the Brisbane City Pops Orchestra last Saturday in Kenmore, for our second concert together. With Monday night being our last rehearsal for this concert series, the orchestra also had a bit of a Christmas bash, and gave me a kind token of their appreciation. We’ll have our final concert together […]

I’d like to thank the Brisbane City Pops Orchestra for their playing at yesterday’s […]
