Last Weeks Speaker - Paul Dyer

Last week we had the pleasure of Paul Dyer speak at our meeting.   Paul is the founder and  Director of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra (ABO).   

Paul delighted  members and friends by talking about his background, how he always had an interest in music from a very young age.  The amount of effort and work he put in to be successful and the many events he proformed at. Paul was a most down to earth person, he was most interesting and also humurous. We would like to thank Paul for his time and presentation.
