New composition, new performances

I have just completed a major composition entitled Songs at First Light for jazz piano trio and chamber sextet, a 40-minute piece that I have been working on full-time for several months. It will be premiered in the Aurora Festival on Saturday April 19 along with the premiere of my String Quartet No. 3. More information here. The concert will be broadcast direct to air nationally on ABC Classic FM and streamed live on the Web.

In May I will be performing again with the Resurgence band, including some new material. We'll play in Sydney at the Sound Lounge, Seymour Theatre Centre on Saturdays May 3 & 10 and again on May 21 at the Stonnington Jazz Festival in Melbourne.
