He has worked continuously as a performer and educator since then with some of Sydney’s top institutions including the Sydney Symphony, Australian Opera and Ballet, Sydney University and UNSW. Prior to this Steven earned and Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degree from the Juilliard School followed by twenty-one more years of freelance work in New York City.

He performed in all of the major concert halls including Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and many Broadway theatres. Working with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, New York City Ballet, and the original Company of A Chorus Line on Broadway are just a few of the highlights of more than two decades of professional work in New York.

­ amazing energy, funding and collecting works is needed to organize and realize an orchestra such as SCO and all these wonderful concerts, you make the quality of music rise in every musical work and there are not a lot of you out there.

The SCO has been doing very interesting work indeed and certainly worthy of support.
