"You just have to get yourself out there, and that’s the most difficult thing. Whether that’s meeting people in the foyer after concerts and shaking hands, becoming friends, then sending them your music, or entering competitions. Or cold-emailing people! You might not get an email back, but until people know your name nothing is going to happen" – Connor D'Netto
In conversation with Megan Steller, Rehearsal Magazine
This week, four new Australian works will be premiered by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Conductor Brett Kelly will take to the stage for the Cybec 21st Century Australian Composers Concert. The four composers come together to tell CutCommon readers what their works are all about, and the personal exploration they’ve taken through their music.
Excited to announce that I've been selected as one of four composers to take part in the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra's Cybec Foundation Composer Program! As part of this, I have received a commission for a new work, to be premiered in concert by MSO in January 2017.
