Bach and Britten description

Unfortunately, this event is now sold out. 

Rising star James Morley grew up in Adelaide studying cello with Hilary Kleinig, Janis Laurs, and Rachel Johnston. He completed his Bachelor of Music (Performance) at the Sydney Conservatorium on scholarship in 2018 with Julian Smiles, and is currently studying under Howard Penny at the National Academy of Music. He has performed across Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Asia as an orchestral cellist, chamber musician and soloist. ​

In this program of unaccompanied works by Bach and Britten, the remarkably talented 24-year-old demonstrates a sensitivity, finely honed expression and virtuosic control of his instrument far beyond his tender age.
