The New England Bach Festival is planning to go ahead this year in April/May. I've been invited to perform with the Sydney Consort who are coming together for a final performance, it will be great to work with Stan and Monika again. I'm also playing in a duo performance with local guitarist Steve Thorneycroft who has also written a new piece for recorder and guitar thanks to the support of Create NSW.


Create NSW has been a huge supporter of Armidale curators, performers and composers in 2020, I also received a Create NSW grant to collaborate with composer Ros Bandt in a new multimedia work for recorder. 


Regrowth - New multimedia work for recorder to provide an opportunity for regional NSW community members affected by drought, floods and fire to have their voices heard in a poetic and respectful way. The project aims to contribute to the diversity of cultural expression and audiences.

Create NSW has also supported the WORDPLAY performances in various schools in the Armidale area.


These projects have been supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
