Next FAME Festival - Perth in January 2022
For your diaries! The next FAME Festival will be held in Adelaide from Sunday January 5th to Sunday January 12th, 2020
The conductor for the Perth FAME Festival 2022 will be
Werner Ruecker who has taught classical guitar for many years and has been the conductor of the Melbourne Mandolin Orchestra for some years before moving up to Sydney where he now conducts the Sydney Mandolin Orchestra. He conducted the Sydney FAME Festival in 2015. He has also created some lovely music for mandolin orchestras to play as well as arrangements of works by some famous composers.
The Perth FAME Festival is being planned by committee of the West Australia Mandolin Orchestra and they have circulated an "Expressions of Interest" document to find out how many players are interested in participating in the Festival. This document is attached below and it is important that the Festival Committee of WAMO gets a good number of participants to justify booking the Festival venue (St Catherine's College at Nedlands).
Below the picture of Werner Ruecker is a document called "Points of Interest" which gives some details of the program plus an estimate of the cost of accommodation at St Catherine's College.
So if you are interested in coming to beautiful Perth in January 2022 but haven't filled out and returned the expression of interest document PLEASE do so NOW - don't be put off where it says "return this form by May 1st - NOW is still good.
