Barney McAll To Curate Performances At 2019 Art Music Awards

Pianist and composer Barney McCall has been chosen to curate the 2019 Art Music Awards.

McAll has worked with the Gary Bartz band in New York and played with the Josh Roseman Unit, Fred Wesley and the JB’s, Groove Collective, and Kurt Rosenwinkel‘s “Heartcore”. He completed a Bachelor of Music at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, studying with pianists Paul Grabowsky, Tony Gould and Mike Nock and with guitarist Doug Devries.

His ensembles include “M.O.D.A.S”, “Sylent Running”, “GRAFT” and his most recent ensemble ASIO (Australian Symbiotic Improvisers Orbit). He was awarded the Australia Council Fellowship in 2007 and worked as musical director for Australian vocalist Sia Furler from 2011-2012.

The 2019 Art Music Awards will also debut the newly named Richard Gill Award for Distinguished Services to Australian Music. Gill, who passed away in October 2018, consistently pursued music as a tool for child development.

John Davis, CEO for the Australian Music Centre said, “Our art music community grows more dynamic and more diverse year after year, and we believe it was time for the Art Music Awards to reflect this change. The magnificent Great Hall at Sydney University is imbued with a beautiful sense of history and prestige, so we felt it was appropriate to liberate our audience from the pews to better experience the evening’s fabulous live performance program, and to participate in this unique celebration of our rich art form.”
