Work Overview

Like Snowdrops You Will Shine (2018) for string orchestra was commissioned by the Hush hospital foundation for a premiere performance by the Australian Chamber Orchestra Collective and recorded for the 2018 Hush Foundation CD.

This piece was chosen for the Australian Chamber Orchestra's 2019 worldwide selected playlist celebrating "Incredible Female Artists".

Like Snowdrops You Will Shine for string orchestra refers to the delicate white snowdrop flower that symbolises hope, optimism, courage and new beginnings for people who are facing a challenging situation.

Opening with a delicate and playful 'snowdrop' pizzicato motif bouncing around the ensemble, shining melodic colours and thick, warm chordal harmonies create an uplifting and positive ambiance. Soothing seagull harmonic glissando sounds enhance a calm and meditative atmosphere.

Like Snowdrops You Will Shine is dedicated to the doctors, nurses, volunteers and administrative staff whose compassion, kindness and encouragement we could not do without.

Through my music I hope to provide comfort for anyone who is facing a challenging time in their lives.
