Another year has passed and we've reached the almighty 2020! I've been playing percussion since Grade 9 in 2009 - that's a whole decade. I was looking through old photos, and so much has happened. I am forever grateful to the people, experiences and music I've encountered, as they have made me who I am today and shaped my values, identity and beliefs. I honestly wouldn't be here without them. Here are some photos below from the past since 2013, which was my first year at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University.
These were just photos from my private Instagram account, but there are many more photos and videos on my Facebook business page as well! Other 2019 highlights include augmenting for Queensland Wind Orchestra and Ipswich City Symphony, playing musicals with Ormiston College's Mary Poppins and Savoyards' Oklahoma, as well as a charity gig with The Stairwell Project. I ended the year by premiering Andree Greenwell's chamber opera workshop for 'Three Marys' at the Opera Queensland Studio in December as seen below.
I've been planning a lot for 2020, such as bringing back my podcast, Musicians Unmuted, and starting up musical projects of a percussion ensemble and vibraphone and vocals works. I've also been working on a thesis proposal to start a Masters next year - wish me luck!
Laugh, Love, Live and cherish the past for a better future!
