Melbourne Trip

Performance count: 3 in 3 days.

Started off with a performance at Up Your Alley Chamber Music Festival. It was a project presented by the Melbourne Philharmonia Project, spearheaded by the legendary Luke Carbon.

The next day, we teamed up with saxophonists from Melbourne, Joseph Lallo and Emily Clarke for a concert at Melba Hall, Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. We performed Philippe Geiss’ Patchwork for saxophone quartet. (Photo Credit: Kevin Zhang)

On the 3rd day, we took part in the final round of 3MBS’ The Talent. Here is the review of our performance https://thetalent3mbs.com/2016/10/26/reeds-and-strings-a-review-of-ep-3/ It was so nice to perform with the amazing Leigh Harrold again!

New Video Update

My teacher, Tarko Sibbel and myself performing Steven Galante’s Diminishing Returns (Sax Sounds III) for two alto saxophones and electronic delay. Please enjoy!

Side-note: Unprecedented laughter from the audience at the start because we got locked out of the hall (despite being 4 pieces into the recital) resulting in us entering from the left of the stage! Haha!

Thankyou to all who attended All Things Different! (17 November 2015)
