Australians at Harvard - New cello music performed by Jason Calloway

John Knowles Paine Concert Hall, Harvard University

Jason Calloway - cello

Australians at Harvard celebrates the brief convergence of four of Sydney’s most distinctive young composers as Harvard students and faculty. With all four being graduates of the now defunct Sydney University Music Department, this community in exile represents the last flowering of a distinctive branch of Australian composition. Contemporary music specialist and Julliard graduate Jason Calloway will perform their solo cello works, as well as pieces by fellow Sydney University alumnus and 2000-1 Harvard Chair of Australian Studies Barry Conyngham, and preeminent Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe, from whom all five composers have learned.

This concert is presented by the Frank Knox Memorial Fellows. Knox Fellowships support the studies of select Commonwealth students — including two of the concert’s featured composers — across Harvard’s graduate schools, promoting international synergies through cross-cultural exchange.
