Hi Andrew

I was very surprised at the WA Schools Orchestra Festival last night
to receive my ABODA citation. This was rather unexpected and a real

It was presented at the conclusion of the festival and I had just
finished conducting the Churchlands Orchestra. The students were still
all on stage and so that made it extra special. Neil Coy, very kindly,
made a lovely speech that was quite humbling.

The festivals here continue to grow in numbers and quality and that
is a large result of the excellent work of the ABODA committee here in
WA and in particular Neil’s work as state president.

Please pass on my thanks to the National Board for the award and I
look forward to supporting the objectives ABODA in various capacities
over the coming years.

Best wishes
