“Playing alongside the Australian World Orchestra was an absolute dream come true. The amazing unity and power of the sound created within this ensemble was something I had not witnessed before, and to be a part of that sound was incredible. I learnt so much from playing alongside Australia’s finest musicians and it is an experience I will never forget.”
