2014 WA Young Artists Chamber Music Program
The WA Young Artists Chamber Music Program is again taking place at the UWA School of Music during the Sept-Oct school holidays. An annual event for a few years now, this Program has fast become a very valuable offering for the WA classical music community. The Program is the brainchild of Sartory String Quartet cellist Sophie Curtis. I'm so happy that I'm able to be a small part of this, being a tutor in this year's Program. Here's a video about the Program; more details can be found at the 'WAYACHAMP' website.

Degustation: seven courses for solo viola to be used in documentary
I'm thrilled that my piece Degustation: seven courses for solo viola is being used in the documentary 'Why the Face', about Rhode Island artist Julie Shelton Smith's exhibition project '100 Women Over 50'. A preview screening of this documentary film by Elizabeth Delude-Dix was featured as part of the exhibition opening on 12 September. There's an article here about the exhibition and documentary.
