The American Premiere of my HYMN OF ANCIENT LANDS is happening in several concerts over the next week in Minneapolis, Minesota by #TheSummerSingers, as part of their series “Timeless” which features both new and classic pieces set to timeless texts. This is an incredible choir of very fine singers, and I’m truly honoured that they are performing my work, and wonderful to be performed alongside lovely composer friends like @jakerunestad ! Hope all my Mineappolis friends can make it! <3

Here’s an arrangement of mine for #KateMillerHeidke which she’s touring with great orchestras around Australia right now. ‘Elysian Fields’ is a gorgeous melody, a tricky arrangement to create with lots of extended effects for strings, played stunningly here by the #TasmanianSymphonyOrchestra.
It’s also out on her latest album The Best of Kate Miller-Heidke!

Delighted to share my arrangement of PURE IMAGINATION for #Aussie pop sensation #GuySebastian and Dreamworld Australia, thanks to the guys at Smith and Western Sound. Started with the original orchestration with Gene Wilder and re-adapted it to suit Guy’s voice as well as the amazing #Yugambeh Indigenous Choir.
Great to work on such a classic song with a distinctly #Aussie flavour. Here it is in a cool behind-the-scenes video

cuddle-cure:

bleepy:

sindependent:

tag yourself as a major key i’m D♭ major and A major

i’ve always had characteristics in my mind for each major key and i don’t understand how this is so accurate to what was in my brain? like does every musician think of keys like this? because i always thought it was just me but these characteristics are pretty much exactly what i’ve always thought of each key??? i’m so amazed right now

Classic FM shared this on Facebook. I’m so pleased

Children’s Opera: The Grumpiest Boy In the World

My new children’s opera for Victorian Opera premiered recently and has been received wonderfully. The Grumpiest Boy in the World, story and libretto by Finegan Kruckemeyer, is an enchanting tale about a grumpy seven-year old. Fed up with being normal, Zachary Briddling travels to places where there are giants and hairy creatures, and learns that anyone can stand out, no matter how ordinary they believe they are. This is one of the unique ways Victorian Opera connect our community with the marvelous world of opera. It was a delight to collaborate with playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer and immense talents Cameron Menzies (director), Orchestra Victoria under the baton of Simon Bruckard, and Chloe Graves (set design).
