With great sadness Arts Management marks the passing of our much-loved and respected conductor, educator, advocate and friend, Richard Gill.
All of us at Arts Management, past and present, including Virginia Braden, Judith Alexander, Sharyn McKenzie, Kristina Joy, Sonja Patterson, Sarah Holloway, Matthew Brown, Andari Anggamulia, Sarah Thomas, and Pontus Aleryd were inspired, moved, invigorated and constantly surprised and entertained by Richard the musician, Richard the man and his joie de vivre.
We will miss him terribly, but remember him always and with great affection.
