I’m usually busy writing about education, technology, or the art of composition – but I rarely get to write about the best bit of composition, which is getting your music performed! Luckily in the next few months I’ve got quite a bit of music being performed, so I thought a quick promotional blog might be in order, in case you feel like you need a bit more Humberstone music in your life. Two of these are world premieres and the other is an opera, so it’s not stuff that gets performed all the time.
The Speaking Piano
An outreach kit for children in primary schools around Goulburn, featuring a printed story book, webapp and even iBook for iPad – culminates in a performance by Michael Kieran Harvey on the 17th August, 7:30pm, Goulburn Regional Conservatorium.
My children’s opera, and the centrepiece of my PhD, getting its second run-out. This time by students at St Catherine’s Waverley, 11th and 12th September.
Circles and Cycles
This new experimental work will be premiered by Ensemble Offspring on their Music to Infinity tour from the 15th September, which you can read more about here. I’ve also created an education kit and will be presenting some hands-on workshops for music students before some of the concerts – enquire with the venues if you’d like to send your students.
