While trying to finish the exegesis for my PhD, I've had a number of welcome interruptions, including two commissions from the Adelaide Youth Orchestra. I've completed an arrangement of Old MacDonald Had a Farm (with lots of orchestral farm animal noises!) for Adelaide Youth Sinfonia to play at the Babies Proms concert in August, and I'm currently working on a fanfare for the Adelaide Youth Wind Orchestra and November's Gala Concert.
Since my last update (a long time ago - sorry!), I've had the opportunity to record two more of my wind orchestra compositions, Yukon Sunrise and Over the Hills and Far Away.
Finally, I'm conducting a concert next weekend with the Adelaide Wind Orchestra, "Castles and Cathedrals." It's British-themed program which I've chosen (Holst, Hesketh, Maconchy...), although it ends with an Australian work that I very much admire: David Stanhope's Concerto for Band.
