“The AWO is such a brilliant idea. There are so many wonderful Australian musicians living all over the world, and to bring all of them together will be really exciting for both the players and the audience. I personally do not get back to Australia very often, and when I do it is usually purely for a holiday, so to go back there and perform is something I am really looking forward to.”
