Wow. Thanks for the 5-star review @limelightartsau 🙏
Fab photo of @chris.williams.didgeridoo bringing our Ancient Rainforest piece to life with the amazing @southerncrosssoloists1.
“Twist’s film soundtrack experience was evident, as the music ebbed and flowed to the rhythm of the rainforest. When the last note of the digeridoo faded into oblivion the audience became ecstatic with cries of “Bravo”, raucous applause and stamping feet. “
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Extremely chuffed to have been a little part of this amazing concert. The real work was done by the world-class musicians of the Southern Cross Soloists and didgeridoo legend Chris Williams, to whom I am extremely grateful and indebted.

Having a little yarn about my new piece being premiered by @southerncrosssoloists1 at @atqpac next Sunday, and in front of one of Will Robinson’s stunning rainforest paintings which inspired the piece. How awesome is that painting?

Head to YouTube to hear more plus amazing @chris.williams.didgeridoo performing an excerpt 💖

Hope this might be comforting to anyone dealing with lockdown or any hardship; an excerpt of my Australian Song Cycle, set to be performed by the amazing @sydneychamberchoir in late June before being postponed by COVID, seemingly indefinitely for now 💔

This is an a cappella choral movement but obviously on piano here. The words to be sung here are Henry Lawson’s:

“Who now shall wear the cheerful face
In times when things are slackest?
And who shall whistle round the place
When Fortune frowns her blackest?

Oh, may the showers in torrents fall,
And all the tanks run over;
And may the grass grow green and tall
In pathways of the drover” (at Brisbane, QLD Australia)

Thanks @classicfm for mentioning @winchestercathedral’s upcoming online concert for the Southern Cathedrals Festival which will include a stunning performance of my piece “How Shall We Sing In A Strange Land.”

I believe the performance is at 7pm Friday night UK time. I’ll be trying to tune in from all the way over here in Australia

Huge thanks to @couriermail’s Phil Brown for a great chat about my new “Ancient Rainforest” piece for Chris Williams (didgeridoo) and the @southerncrosssoloists1.

Sadly the concert this weekend is postponed due to COVID, but I believe the art gallery performances will go ahead on the Gold Coast at the Hub Of The Arts.

Can’t wait to share this with you all, and happy #NAIDOCWeek2021. It’s an honour and a privilege to celebrate First Nations culture. Thank you from Kurilpa Country 🙏❤️💛🖤🙏 (at Kurilpa Park)

Wishing everyone a happy #NaidocWeek2021 as we celebrate the wonders of the longest continuous culture; our First Nations Australians.

I have had the honour setting words to music by First Nations poet and activist #OodgerooNoonuccal in two of my choral works, most recently in my “Australian Song Cycle.” Pictured is an excerpt of this poem, “Time Is Running Out”; a poignant message of anger at the destruction of sacred, stolen land and the hope of a better tomorrow as we continue to deal with climate change.

Very much looking forward to being with the amazing @sydneychamberchoir when this is finally performed when lockdowns are lifted and singing is safe again.

Happy NAIDOC week everyone and hello from Kurilpa country
🙏🖤💛❤️🙏 (at Kurilpa Park)
