Andrew Ford, OAM

Steel City Strings is honoured and delighted to announce that the distinguished composer Andrew Ford has accepted their invitation to be Patron of the Orchestra.

Andrew has been active at the University of Wollongong and in the Illawarra region, specially the Southern Highlands.  After previewing Tony Williams’ (Four Donkey Films) documentary Steel City Strings – The Passion of Music,  Andrew “was very impressed” by the orchestra, and “just as importantly, I also liked all the people on the screen”.

As Steel City Strings plays music and Andrew writes it, we look forward to a fruitful and enjoyable relationship.
