This month brings another popular CD recording for ABC Classics, this time with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. The programme includes works by Elgar, Delius, Fauré, Ravel, Sibelius and Bach arrangements by Stokowski, as well as my own Droylsden Wakes.

Last month's event with Orchestra Victoria went very well, with a large audience for what was essentially a weekday lunch-hour concert.

The première of Fanfare & Children's March at Lindfield Primary School was well played and received at the centenary occasion. My thanks go to the school for commissioning the work and to Sandie Rose-Castle, the music director. I am sure the piece will be played by many schools in the future.
