The attached flyer is advertising a concert to be held in memory of Richard Pulley who was one of our first generation of Suzuki students and a fellow Suzuki teacher. The concert will be held at 1.30pm on 1st May at St Andrews Cathedral, Town Hall Square.
Richard was a wonderful product of Suzuki teaching. He began violin lessons at the age of 5 years and was taught by his father Laurie Pulley in Armidale.
Richard came to Sydney after completing his HSC in 1987, he led the Sydney Youth Orchestra and Australian Youth Orchestra, toured the United States with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in 1988, was founding Concertmaster of the UNSW orchestra, and was Concertmaster of, The Occasional Performing Sinfonia, for 15 years. He passed away on 30th December 2014 after a 7 year battle with Multiple Myeloma.
An orchestra of Richard’s friends will play in his memory on 1st May, in a fundraising concert for Myeloma research. Three Suzuki trained violinists will play solo with the orchestra – Vivien Jeffery in the First Movement of the Sibelius Concerto, Lisa Stewart in The Lark Ascending, and Ariana Ricci in the Finale of the Mendelssohn Concerto.
Entry by Donation. All proceeds to Research into Multiple Myeloma
