He has conducted all the major Australian orchestras, opera companies and leading choral societies, new music and early music ensembles. A respected music educator, Graham was producer and presenter of the highly successful Keys To Music series on ABC Classic FM from 2003 – 2017.


Music to be workshopped over the weekend includes Vivaldi Gloria, the Mozart Te Deum K 141 and the Mozart Sancta Maria K273. There will be 2 rehearsals at Connections on King in Buderim prior to the workshop to enable participants to familiarise themselves with the music.

Links to rehearsal tracks and sheet music will be provided to all those registered to attend.
