Rohan studied percussion in Hale using Joel Bass — that will probably accompany the concert and also WA Symphony Orchestra main percussionist Brian Maloney.
He was the leader from the Australian Youth Orchestra’s Young Symphonists’ App, a top association for emerging Australian musicians.
The app in Government House comprises Fugue in G minor by J.S. Bach, initially for violin, also functions written for percussion, starting using Rebonds B from Iannis Xenakis and finishing with Marimba Concerto Movement 3 by Emmanuel Sejourne.
“From screens of intensity and virtuoso, to lyrical ballads and stunning melodies, these functions onto the marimba, vibraphone, along with multi-percussion will exhibit the most genuinely energetic and captivating character of percussion,” Rohan said.
The concert is around November 29, 5pm-6pm, in Government House, Perth. Tickets are offered on https://www.trybooking.com/BLYKL.
