Peter Bray & Harrison Whalan

Peter & Harrison recently graduated from the National Carillon Teaching Programme.  They now join the team of Carillonists at the National Carillon Canberra.  Peter began study with Dr. Thomas Laue (Senior Carillonist) in 2014 after attending the Carillon Spring School Holiday Programme.  Harrison began in November 2016 (with Lead Carillonist Lyn Fuller) in response to an NCA advertisement calling for applicants to study Carillon.

They are both highly talented and were recently assessed by International Carillonists Koen Van Assche from Belgium and Anna-Maria Reverté of Barcelona.

They are playing at University standard and more, so join us in celebrating Harrison & Peter’s success as you listen to them to-day.
