In Conversation with Elyane Laussade
“When I come out of my solitude and join forces with other musicians, something far more powerful occurs. It is communication on the highest level, a communion with a kindred spirit… and I don’t know if there is a greater experience (other than baguettes with French cheese!)”
In the June issue of On Air magazine we feature Elyane Laussade, one of 3MBS’s most beloved musicians. Elyane’s association with 3MBS spans more than twenty years and her joyful pianism, exceptional talent and wide-ranging repertoire ensure she’s in-demand as a soloist, chamber musician, teacher, mentor and adjudicator in Australia and beyond. We chat with Elyane about her love of music—and exquisite food—as she prepares for her June recital in our Kawai Live series.

In the June issue of On Air magazine, Joel Crotty presents a profile of leading Pilipino composer and ethnomusicologist Christine Muyco. Christine is engaged in research to record indigenous music-making practices in her country, and many of her own compositions draw upon Pilipino art forms. Christine is a strong advocate for greater visibility and recognition of female composers in the Philippines.
“Hearing unsolicited positive feedback from our listeners and subscribers never loses its thrill!”
In the June issue of On Air magazine, we get to know 3MBS presenter Geoff Chambers, whose Colours of Jazz program is a highlight for Friday night listeners. We hear about what drew Geoff to 3MBS six years ago, what he loves about presenting his weekly program, and which music he finds “achingly beautiful”.
