This month we bid farewell and wish good luck to our Marketing Manager, Andrew Rumsey. We are extremely excited to announce that Andrew will be embarking on a US performance tour and will be leaving the country at the end of May.
Andrew begins this tour with a concert appearance at Carnegie Hall on Saturday 3rd of June, performing works by Rachmaninov and Michael Dooley. After his Carnegie Hall debut, Andrew will be performing in the Miami Music Festival and then the Atlantic Music Festival. Both of these festivals are internationally renowned and extraordinarily competitive, so it is a huge honour to be selected to participate. A series of concerts will follow as part of the tour, before Andrew travels to Canada, hopefully to the Banff Centre for a performance residency.
“It is very scary to be embarking on this new trajectory and I’m sad to be leaving behind so many amazing people! I’ll particularly miss Ara and Nyree for their unfailing support and encouragement over the past 3 years!”
Andrew loves the piano and could often be found practising at the Theme & Variations showroom as late as 1am and as early as 5am! This tour marks a new chapter in his life and we are very proud of his achievement. Leaping into the lion’s den as a performing artist is no trivial pursuit and certainly not an easy road. The competition is fierce, the tension is high and often these artistic pursuits come at great financial expense. The standard of talent around the world is so high because so many people love music and want to share it with others. This is just but one reason why Theme & Variations Piano Services supports music in Australia and indeed internationally in every way possible.
Although it will be sad to say goodbye to one of our beloved colleagues, with modern technology at our fingertips, nobody is ever too far away!
