Well done Jessica – we know what an incredible talent you are, and are more than happy to share you with the Texans! Enjoy being totally immersed in such a creative environment, we can’t wait to work with you when you return in December, full of inspiration and knowledge.

At Perth Symphony, we are working our hardest to grow the music and culture scene in WA, so that talented musicians and artists like Jessica have world class opportunities here in Perth.
