May 2018 Newsletter

Stonnington Jazz Festival, Shannon Barnett & the Sam Anning Sextet,
plus Mondays @ the Jazzlab, Transient Thursdays @ Uptown, & more...


Hello!

I'm excited to share 'Love in Solitude', a piece I composed last year as a result of the Merlyn Myer Composing Women's Commission. It's inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke's 'Letters to a Young Poet' (text read by Miroslav Bukovsky) and is performed by Ensemble Offspring in the beautiful Utzon Room at the Sydney Opera House.

Some special events for me this month include playing duo with Tim Wilson at Stonnington Jazz Festival, a project by Christopher Hale at the Arts Centre and the start of the Sam Anning sextet tour/CD launch.
