Eddie Ayres shares two stories from the 1960s to remind us how to be brave.
Eddie Ayres learnt the viola as a child in England, studying in Berlin and London before eight years with the Hong Kong Philharmonic. He presented a long-running and extremely popular breakfast radio program on ABC Classic FM, while teaching music privately and professionally. In 2016, he accepted a teaching position at the world-renowned Afghanistan National Institute of Music but returned to Australia to begin transitioning. He’s written two books – Danger Music and Cadence: Travels with Music, as well as a children’s picture book, Sonam and the Silence, published this year.
