My second contribution to ClassikOn.com during the COVID-19 pandemic is now live where I talk about what I've been up to during the performance shutdown.
Read my latest contribution to ClassikOn discussing the moment we’re experiencing right now during COVID-19, the importance of solidarity from within our tight-knit global community and how we can achieve it with projects such as The Musical Solidarity Project.
Just over a week to submit your ‘Va, pensiero’ videos to the project.
Take care all and safe safe.
Recently, I hosted an Online Recital (art song) with my pianist friend Su Cho. Here I explain our process and discuss how we made the most of gathering an audience and receiving donations from our generous audience. All instructions my opinions and a documentation of my role in the online recital preparation, recording and promotion process.
Check out my latest review of Consort 8's latest concert for ClassikON. I've recently become an Ambassador for ClassikON and will be attending more concerts to review in the future.
Programs printed for this Tuesday’s exam recital at Sydney Conservatorium of Music. I’m a big believer in ‘love your audience’. Give them everything they need so they have the best experience that you can possibly give them.
That’s why I’ve written a 3,700 word program and have had it looked over by experienced program writers and editors. I’ve also been meticulous about its formatting. Audiences deserve to have their intelligence respected and they deserve an engaging performance in all aspects. No matter how large, how small or how seasoned your audience is.
Magician Harry Thurston told Dale Carnegie that before every show he would stand behind the curtain repeating to himself ‘I love my audience. I love my audience. I love my audience.’ He wouldn’t think them dumb because they couldn’t work out his tricks. He loved them because they were there seeing his show and making his livelihood possible.
THIS is performing. THIS is positivity. Love your audience and hopefully they’ll love you back. And most importantly work hard for them and prepare thoroughly. It’s all on you.

Wollongong Baritone Gives Reprise Recital
After a successful repertoire debut in July, local operatic baritone, Jeremy Boulton will give a reprise of his popular recital programme this October as part of Austinmer Uniting Church’s Classics in the Chapel recital series. The Opera Australia Scholarship Recipient from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music said he’s thrilled to be invited to reprise this performance just up the road from his hometown.
‘I’ve never been asked to reprise a recital programme in a new venue. This is exciting because I’ll be able to improve and change up my approach to the music.’
Boulton will reprise the famous English song-cycle ‘Songs of Travel’ by Vaughan-Williams – a song cycle that tells of the challenging encounters of a traveling man as he moves through the obstacles he encounters in his world.
‘I can draw so many parallels between the character (‘The Vagabond’) and myself. There are so many struggles that you face as an emerging artist in any field – but these songs in particular allow me to express myself and my journey through song as a young operatic artist and as a young adult’.
The text of the ‘Songs of Travel’ comes from a series of diary entries and short poems written over several years and countries by Robert Louis Stevenson (Treasure Island).
The recital will also feature the popular folk song arrangements by Benjamin Britten and the Don Quixote songs by Maurice Ravel.
‘The best thing about this recital its accessibility. Most of it is sung in English, and when it isn’t, thorough translations and analysis will be provided to all of the audience. Art music should be accessible to all and you don’t have to be a hardcore fan to just sit and let it wash over you’.
‘You don’t have to understand anything about classical music for it to impact you deeply and provide reprieve from the chaotic world we live in.’
Boulton will be joined by esteemed local accompanist, David Vance who has just finished conducting the debut concert of the newly formed Opus Collective Orchestra & Soloists and featuring in Con Voci Vocal Ensemble’s ‘Schubertiade’ at The Church on the Mall.
Tickets are available at the door on the day.
