Joshua Creek and Andrew Rumsey will be joined by students from the ANU School of Music, Anneliese McGee-Collett on cello, and Ciaran Edwards-McKeown and  Campbell Diamond on guitar.

Sponsored by the Friends of the School of Music, ANU, Creek and Rumsey have recently returned from the Tel-Hai International Piano Master classes in Israel where they studied repertoire for four hands with the Kanazawa-Admony Duo.

Rumsey is a Masters graduate of the ANU School of Music, where he studied piano performance under Geoffrey Lancaster, Arnan Wiesel and Marcela Fiorillo. He was awarded the Imad Nassir Piano Performance Prize, the Dennis Griffin National Masters Piano Scholarship and membership of the Golden Key International Honours Society.

In 2012, he  organised and performed in the “Support Our School” concert, the largest concert the School of Music has ever hosted.

Creek was a prominent classical pianist from an early age, eventually studying Music and Law at ANU. In 2012, Joshua reached Stage 2 of the ABC Young Performers Award and in early 2013, he released his debut solo album. Proceeds of this concert will go to the Wesley Music Foundation which supports young local musicians.
