Composer Conversations, Jessica Wells
This is your chance to hear all about writing chamber music, straight from the composers themselves.
Australia Ensemble Artistic Chair, Paul Stanhope hosts the 2019 series of Composer Conversations, to which he has invited featured Australian composers in for a chat. These intimate and engaging discussions are free and open to all, with time for questions. This is an opportunity to learn more about being a composer and about a particular work before you hear it live in concert!
The Composer Conversations will be held in the newly renovated Clancy Auditorium foyer, beginning at 7pm and concluding by 7.45pm in good time for the start of the subscription concert at 8pm.

Jessica Wells, on Saturday September 14, 7pm to talk about her new commissioned work for the Australia Ensemble
John Peterson, on Saturday October 12, 7pm, to talk about his work Guilty Pleasures, written for the Australia Ensemble in 2007
