Shackle played lecture/concerts at the University of Western Sydney and the Sydney Conservatory for very receptive but remarkably different audiences. We ended our stay with a concert at the Now Now in downtown Sydney.

I had a chance to spend some eating and drinking time with composer Michael Smetanin and his lovely wife Maria. And I spent some special days with Cor Fuhler and Anna McMichael and their boys Lucian and Darius.
