We remember David starting as a beginner and, once he had decided on a career in music, he worked very hard for 10 years with Daniel Walsh before commencing studies for his undergraduate degree in music. We congratulate David, and we are sure that his mum, dad, and his own sons are all very proud.

This seems to be a wonderful match between a professional orchestra and a chief conductor, both of whom like to challenge themselves with daring new ways to reach and entertain an audience.

We'll be watching the developments of new projects with interest! :-)
