Audience & Marketing Notes
- The Violin. Often regarded as rather dusty, old school and somewhat straight laced in it’s traditional use, prepare to hear one unleashed like never before!
- Roy is a familiar name and face in the Australian music industry, a former concertmaster with the Melbourne Symphony and more recently doing his own thing in a variety of artistic endeavours.
- Simultaneously emotive, exuberant, thoughtful and entertaining, this show smashes all the violin and classical music stereotypes well and truly out of the park. Feel good factor – high!
- Able and keen to interact with local school music departments and/or community orchestra/string groups/vocal ensembles, who may wish to perform as part of the main stage event. Roy has extensive experience in schools/community settings - has been and still currently is, Head of Orchestra and String Specialist at Melbourne Girls Grammar, plus also Artistic Director of Stonnington Symphony (a Community Orchestra of 60 players). Groups would have sheet music to learn and tracks to listen to distributed in advance but could work with Roy on the day or on a number of occasions prior to show.

Flexible - 45 or 90 Minutes
