HOMEPAGE AUGUST 1ST 2014


…….great art is slowly disappearing and being replaced by superficial semi-culture.

Stanislaw Skrowaczewski

Down Under

How can we develop greater awareness of and participation in our concert events and recordings?

Apologies for the six month gap in my website musings – I have spent too much time away from the computer, conducting in Lisbon, Sydney, Melbourne, Hong Kong and Germany.

In Sydney I met Steve Petersen, President of CBDNA, for a dinner of kangaroo steaks and Australian red; we discussed his recent challenge to his CBDNA membership:

I am charging this committee with the task of considering ways to advance wind band music in today's culture. Among the questions they should consider are:


What is the current audience for wind band music?


How can we develop a larger audience?


How can we develop greater awareness of and participation in our concert events and recordings?


What other creative organizations might be interested in what we do? How can we collaborate with them?


What needs do music students have that are distinct from 15 years ago? What can we do serve those needs?


Go to the CBDNA website for more information, and send in your views to the President, Steve Peterson, speterson@ithaca.edu or to me at timreynish@tiscali.co.uk

As well as concerts, I have given conducting courses, one in Australia, two in Portugal and one in Hong Kong. I have found on my travels a general lack of knowledge of standard British repertoire, let alone more outré works, so this first homepage of the new school year (mid-year for Australia) concentrates on repertoire, old favorites which I have been conducting or teaching and new pieces.
