Accomplished and prolific British composer and musician, Sally Beamish, was invited to be this year’s composer-in-residence at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music (AFCM) by Artistic Director, Jack Liebeck. She has been a composer-in-residence at other festivals, but was delighted to accept this invitation.
She tells ArtsHub: ‘I was absolutely thrilled. It is always exciting to hear quite a few of your pieces played together. Additionally, I have twice planned to come to Australia and it hasn’t happened, due initially to illness and then cancellation because of COVID. It’s lovely to be here now.’
