“As an expatriate musician for 26 years, I have often marvelled at how many Australian musicians there are in the world’s top orchestras, and how an immediate bond is felt whenever we meet. I’ve often dreamt of what sort of orchestra those musicians would create when combined, and it is very exciting to have played with the AWO in every season and now be invited to conduct the orchestra.”
