Last night I took a happy snap of two successful
|Simon and Jonathon|
As a Mum I am proud of Jonathon, a successful Sydney neurosurgeon, who is also Head of the Neurosurgery Department at The Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney.
I claim Simon as one of our family circle and am justifiably proud of his efforts. Simon Murphy moved to The Netherlands to further his music studies after he completed his tertiary studies in Sydney. He established an orchestra, The New Dutch Academy, in 2002 and since then has made quite a name for himself on the international music scene. As I sit here and listen to one of the CDs Simon has made with the orchestra I am rather impressed.
Simon's present trip to Australia was to perform as guest conductor of The Queensland Symphony Orchestra. His two programs were Roman Holiday and New Generation.
These two chaps are still not yet 40, I wonder what their futures will bring.
