Melbourne International Singers Festival 2018 welcomes Antony Pitts, from The Song Company

In the lead up to our 9th annual Melbourne International Singers Festival, we unfortunately have to advise that due to ill health, Richard Gill AO has to withdraw.

Richard very much regrets not being able to proceed and wishes all participants a rewarding and enjoyable Festival.  Of course, we all wish Richard a speedy recovery and we are hoping that he will be able to join us as our Guest Conductor at the Melbourne International Singers Festival in future.

We are delighted to announce, however, that renowned Australian conductor, ANTONY PITTS, will be replacing Richard as our Guest Conductor, courtesy of The Song Company, leading our festival choruses, workshops & masterclasses.
