“I am very excited to have the opportunity to play in the Australian World Orchestra as a part of my participation in the 2011 Australian Youth Orchestra program. It will allow me to play along side Australia’s top professional orchestral musicians. As the other players are all part of the professional music scene both here and overseas it will be fantastic to learn from their vast musical experience. I am looking forward to performing in the three concerts and being involved in such a unique orchestra.”

“I have been waiting for something like this to happen for the last 20 years since I left Australia. I never really found my way back into the Australian music world after studying and playing over here for so long. It’s a great opportunity for us to be able to show the world what we are capable of. It’s going to be unbelievable.”
