AYO Premieres 'A Fool's Prayer'

Every year the Australian Youth Orchestra hosts its National Music Camp, a two week program that brings together some of Australia's most promising talent. It was an immense privilege to partake as one of four composers selected to compose new works for an ensemble comprising tutors of the NMC. These remarkable instrumentalists come from all over the country to support the development of the next generation of musicians; they perform in some of Australia's most prestigious classical music institutions including WASO, TSO, SSO, MSO, ASQ etc. 

After two weeks of intensive workshops and rehearsals, 'A Fool's Prayer' was premiered at the Elder Hall in Adelaide by an ensemble of 15 AYO tutors under the baton of Max McBride.

Premiere: AYO, 20/01/2017, Elder Hall, Adelaide, S.A.
