News May 2018

The official launch of the first two CDs performed by "David Stanhope and His Orchestra" - Australian Fantasia and Australian Premières - has been confirmed. The ceremony will held in the Tallis wing of the Melbourne Conservatorium on June 13th at 6 pm. My thanks to Ormond Professor Gary McPherson for holding the event. But I must also give special thanks to Doctor Jane McKellar for her work in creating this opportunity; her Melbourne contacts have proved invaluable.

The May issue of ABCFM's Limelight magazine (due out now) contains an article about my PhD project. I also recorded an interview for Andrew Ford's Saturday morning music programme on Radio National, which should be broadcast this month.


I am meeting five of the singers for my opera Dracula recording on May the 4th, an informal meeting with a bit of singing to break the ice. The actual recording sessions will mostly be in September.











David Stanhope is a free-lance conductor with wide experience in orchestral, opera, chamber and film music. He is a composer, especially for wind band, with many publications. As an instrumentalist, David Stanhope was a french horn player for many years before switching to bass trombone; he is also a virtuoso pianist.
