Our guest speaker’s profile follows:
Andrew Wailes is the Music Director and Chief Conductor of The Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra (RMP), and is only the second RMP conductor to be awarded Life Membership of the organisation in over 160 years. During his 16 years as conductor of the RMP he has reformed the RMP orchestra, leading it on four international tours to China, he founded the RMP Aria Competition, which is now regarded as one of Melbourne’s most important singing competitions, and has lifted artistic standards, which has resulted in the RMP choir again being regarded as Melbourne’s premier symphonic chorus.
RMP singers are strictly auditioned volunteers who come from all walks of professional life in Melbourne and who give their time freely to rehearse and perform choral music at the highest standard. Many have busy professional careers as doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers, public servants, retail managers, administrators and university lecturers, whilst a large number are current or recently graduated music students. RMP singers rehearse once a week throughout the year, and more frequently around major performances. This time of year is particularly busy, and they are preparing for major concerts on December 14 in Melbourne Town Hall and three concerts on 19 and 20 December at St Paul’s Cathedral.
