William Barton is one of three acclaimed musicians we have invited to the School to celebrate the Centenary of the Chapel next week.

William has been playing the didgeridoo for over 20 years; he first started to learn the instrument in Mount Isa. He has worked with many traditional dance groups and fusion/rock jazz bands, orchestras, sting quartets and mixed ensembles, and has been touring internationally since the age of 15.

William is a 2012 ARIA winner for best classical album, Kalkadungu.

Some of William's major career highlights include:
  • G-Day USA tour with Adelaide Symphony Orchestra
  • City of London Festival
  • Private concert for Queen Sofia of Spain
  • World Expo Shanghai
  • Beijing 2008 Olympics, opening ceremony
  • ANZAC Day, ANZAC Cove
  • London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Festival Hall

You are invited to watch William perform at a free concert in the Chapel of St Mary & St George, on Wednesday evening, from 6.30pm-7.30pm. William will be accompanied by selected Guildford Grammar School musicians.
