To coincide with the release of his memoir Give Me Excess of It, Boffins Bookshop in conjunction with West Australian Opera and His Majesty's Theatre is very proud to present this talk by renowned conductor, music educator, and Music Director of the Victorian Opera: Richard Gill AOM.

In an undoubtedly fascinating presentation, Richard will reflect on the role of music in our education system, followed by a brief interview, audience Q&A and book signings. An afternoon tea of sandwiches, cakes, tea and coffee is included in the ticket price.

About Richard Gill and Give Me Excess of It
Richard Gill's career has taken him from being a music teacher in Sydney's western suburbs to Music Director of the Victorian Opera. But beyond raw musical talent, what marks Richard out is his passion as a teacher. He has a deep, infectious love for music which leaves his audiences inspired and enlightened - whether a class of primary students or the cast of a major opera.

Richard's new memoir Give Me Excess of It traces his life from his school days to the highs and lows of conducting and directing an opera company. It's warm, funny, highly opinionated and always sublimely full of a love of music.
