After 50 years as¬†a symphonic and operatic conductor (Link under Biography), Myer Fredman now lives in Hobart where he is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Tasmania’s Conservatorium of Music and is helping young aspiring conductors. Last year he conducted Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas coupled with Britten’s Phaedra and this year he is involved in creating The Tasmanian Discovery Orchestra which will be devoted to performing some of the many¬†masterpieces that have fallen out of the standard repertoire. During Hobart’s Shakespeare Festival in August, he will conduct a production of Sir John in Love by Vaughan Williams “in the round” as well as a concert of music by a number of composers who have been inspired by the Bard.
