Cellist Zoe Knighton

Australian cellist Zoe Knighton talks about the World Premiere work "Hidden Thoughts 2: Return to Sender" by Katy Abbott. The libretto was created from some of the 2,000 Australian letters sent to the asylum seekers held in Detention camps on the island of Nauru which were returned unopened. 
The quartet has built a huge following over the past 20 years. She mentions the value of artists in society which is something you need to remember as well. It's time for the world to change their view on Artists always being starving or doing gigs for free.  Find your own value in what you contribute to the world - have a good think about that - then the vibe you put out when you go talk to fellow artists or clients will change their view of you.

Conductor Sam Allchurch

Director of Music Sam Allchurch from Christ Church St Laurence interview broadcast on Fine Music 102.5FM Sydney Australia. I'd interviewed Sam before so we decided to focus this interview on the amazing refurbishment of the 1840’s church where the choir would be performing. When you are promoting a concert, include as many features as you can. A show is an experience. It's not just the music or the costumes but where the venue is situated, the individual performers or the way they work together, the foyer, the food/coffee/wine, the merchandise, the acoustics, the seating, the nearby restaurants. Think broadly about all that the audience will experience before, during and after the performance when you're selling it. Make clear, appealing pictures they can see in their head.

With performers not competing for jobs nor money, the friendly environment is just delightful. The musicians are devoted and great friends with each other. Their following is very solid.
