Guest Conductor Mark Shiell
Last rehearsal we played under the baton of Mark Shiell, our guest conductor. Mark has studied and conducted both in Australia and Internationally, and has worked with some of Australia’s most celebrated composers and performers. He shared with us his stories and experiences working with professional, student and community orchestras.
This week Mark will return to lead a sectional for wind & brass, along with Andrea Keeble, who will be leading the string sectional rehearsal. Andrea is a renowned violinist in a number of Melbourne ensembles, educator, composer and long-time friend to Squawkestra. We welcome them both back for another Composing Conversation.
