Spent our last full day at Victoria College, a specialist music school in Melbourne city centre. Great day, composition session in the morning when Frankie and Stephen showed works which were on a screen for the audience to see and were played and discussed. Lunchtime concert given by both schools and then keyboard, string and WW masterclasses in the afternoon.

All the students had an evening out with their host families, whilst Sarah and Nick hit the town with Geoff and Rhonda! Great dinner in an outside restaurant and a drink in one of the hundreds of roof top bars. This morning is brilliant sunshine whilst we pack to leave. Hard to believe the Aussie adventure is ending – it’s been an amazing trip and huge congrats to all the Chets and Purcell crews who did so brilliantly.

Back to the UK and our day jobs – look forward to sharing memories and photos in the weeks ahead. Farewell for now from the Chets team.
