Coote says, “We enjoy performing in beautiful concert halls and we look forward to playing in Melba Hall on Wednesday night - it’s been a while and will be like visiting an old friend”.

Completing the evening, the Team’s newest member Rohan Murray, will perform Australian composer, Carl Vine’s energetic Piano Sonata no.3, an entertaining and virtuosic composition sure to impress the audience.
