William Garnet James

Composer William Garnet James was the first federal director of the ABC (1931-1957) and it was during his tenure that orchestras were formed in each state.

Ralph Vaughan Williams

Ralph Vaughan Williams was born on 12 October 1872 in Down Ampney, Gloucestershire, where his father, the Reverend Arthur Vaughan Williams (the surname Vaughan Williams is an unhyphenated double-barrelled name of Welsh origin), was vicar.

Don Kay

Don Kay has composed much music for professional individuals, ensembles, young performers, amateur groups, theatre, concert and public occasions. Over time his music has increasingly resulted from response to the Tasmanian landscape, ecology and history.
