News from National conference in Sydney

Written by: dev

Congratulations to the NSW chapter for hosting the ASME XXIV National conference which was a resounding success. Conference delegates were inspired by the keynote speakers – John Foreman, Brydie-Lee Bartleet, Jimmy Rotheram and Jessie Lloyd – as well as a large number of workshops and papers, trade display and performing groups. The ASME National Young Composer Project saw the young composers working with Holly Harrison and Ensemble Offspring, and culminated in a fabulous concert on Wednesday July 5, 2023, which included Holly Harrison’s commissioned work Riffs and Revs.
