We were recently approached by the Journal of the Music Council of Australia, Music Forum, for an article on Australian musicians overseas. The piece is in the Autumn 2012 issue which is now on sale in Australia. Many thanks to Richard Letts for such a great feature on the orchestra and myself, Kelly Lovelady. The journal is only available online to MCA members but here’s a link to our article, “Ruthless Jabiru Loose in London”.
The feature also talks about a similar initiative to ours, made up of Australian career musicians in New York City. ExhAUST is a chamber ensemble of New York-based Australians who present exclusively Australian New Music to the Alt-Classical market. With the sounds of composers Julian Day, Kate Moore, Nadje Noordhuis, William Gardiner, Michael Sollis, Fiona Fraser and Tim Hansen on their opening programme last October, we’re looking forward to hearing who and what they have in store for their next Classical club night.
