I was very privileged to have my Horn Sonata in G Minor chosen as the set piece for the Open French Horn Solo event at the 2023 Australian National Band Championships. Thank you to the music selection committee! I heard two fine performances. Haven't heard a full performance of this piece in years!
As for playing, the North West Wind Ensemble where I play 3rd horn came 1st in Open A Grade Concert! Thanks to our director James Brice. As a conductor, my Northern Sydney Youth Orchestra Winds came 1st in Junior C Grade Concert!
For me personally it was a fantastic weekend!
