January Update

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful festive season. A special shout out to those that didn’t – Christmas and New Year can be a tough time for those who don’t have supportive (or slightly functional) families.  If that was you, I’m sending lots of love and support your way!  Although I’m not big on resolutions, I have resolved to update my blog more frequently – albeit in shorter formats. Without further ado, here’s a little on December and the start to 2016…

Laila & Lisa at 3MBS

Early December I had a lovely chat with the amazing flautist (Syzygy ensemble), broadcaster and new mum (woop!), Laila Engle, on 3MBS Fine Music. This chat was part of a new project, that to my knowledge,  3MBS plan to unveil this year.  And yes, that’s us to the left being super professional and serious.

Christmas came and went too quickly, but it was a lovely chance for James and I to catchup with our families on the Gold Coast and Brisbane.

 

JanuaryLisa & Peggy in Melbourne 13/1/16
I’ve been having a lovely time hanging out with Peggy Polias this week as we plan for our joint venture, Making Waves. Although we’ve been working together on MW for a year now, this is the first time we’ve been able to meet in person (Peggy is based in Sydney and I’m in Melbourne). I think this is pretty impressive!

 

It feels like a crazy-busy month for me: my PhD Confirmation at the University of Melbourne is right around the corner and there’s a commission for the Melbourne Chamber Choir to be finished. I’m also working on a children’s song arrangement for the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and am full steam ahead on Making Waves. However,  even through the tight deadlines and lack of sleep, all I want to say is that it’s such a privilege to be doing all of the things that I love.
