I first met Phil on a rain-soaked day outside my house in Brunswick Terrace, Mullum. It was an accidental encounter, but we soon got stuck into a conversation about the parlous state of Australian universities.

Interview with Claire Atkins from SHIT

I saw SHIT last year and I was blown away. Incredible script. Incredible acting.

Byron Music Society holds a concert each year to showcase our young musicians and to encourage, inspire and support them.

This year the concert was held on November 15 at the Byron Community Centre and it included choirs, a group of string players, a band and ballet dancers as well as solo instrumentalists.

The standard was very high, the theatre was packed and there was a great air of excitement.

Hon Ben Franklin was present and he was so delighted with the concert that he moved a motion in the NSW Legislative Council that thanks be recorded in Hansard to the society and to all the performers (individually named) and this motion was passed unanimously.

This is a rare event to be recorded specifically for Byron Shire and I feel that it is important enough to be announced in the press. I hope that you agree with me.

Chris Abraham, president, Byron Music Society.
