I was very pleased to be asked (but someone else was quite miffed that she hadn't been given the opportunity).
The big day was 31st July. Looking at Ken Wiseman's history of Newcastle Conservatorium, From Park to Palace, I see that John Sewell, whom I taught with at Katoomba High School, also played in the concert in a brass quartet (John is a trumpeter), and Bob Pritchard, who later gave me some valuable tips on using computer music notation, played piano in a Schubert trio. Small world!
