Internationally acclaimed Australia composer, Ann Carr-Boyd, is about to reach her 8th decade.
She was born into a family of professional musicians and was the first person to graduate from the University of Sydney’s inaugural Bachelor of Music program.
She studied with Peter Racine Fricker and Alexander Goehr in London during the swinging 60s, before returning home and establishing herself as a composer.
It only took 80 years but she comes on The Music Show for the first time to reflect on her life, career and music.
