Barry Humphries, Meow Meow and ACO


It’s been my very great pleasure recently to work alongside three great institutions – the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Australian polymath Barry Humphries and my dear long-time collaborator Meow Meow on a concert presentation of Entartete Musik (‘degenerate music’) from between the wars. Details are on a separate page here, and the performances are still running as outlined below – it’s an ACO subscription concert series.

I reckon it’s great, but I’m biased. You can read less biased, more informed reviews here and here

Sidney Myer Performing Arts Award

I’m the proud recipient of the Sidney Myer Performing Arts Award 2012 for an Individual.
I shared the stage with recipients Philip Rolfe, who received he Facilitator’s Prize and the fantastic Ilbijerri Theatre Company who received the Group Prize.
The Award was presented to me by Robyn Archer on behalf of the Trustees of the Sidney Myer Fund at the Spiegeltent in Canberra on 14th March 2013. On the night I accompanied Lisa Maza, sister of Rachael Maza, who is AD of Ilbijerri. I first met Lisa when we worked together on the Jimmy Chi Musical Corrugation Road, so it was a joy to make music with her again.
I also performed Inma Kutju for the assembled guests.
