Many AMS students have gone on to wonderful careers in music.
Here are a few updates from former students.
Jack Symonds – Jack is a former AMS student who was in Miss Samantha’s class at Randwick for many years. He recently received his Bachelor of Music degree with First Class Honours at the Sydney Conservatorium and has been offered a full scholarship to the Royal College of Music in London to complete his Masters in Composition. Jack is the 2nd AMS student in recent years to win the University Medal. It was awarded to Tristan Coelho (Miss Michelle & Miss Samantha’s classes) a few years ago for Bachelor of Music, also at the Sydney Conservatorium
Lucy Kong (nee Yeoman) began at AMS Randwick in 1993 in Miss Samantha’s Monday 4pm class. Lucy was an enthusiastic participant in AMS Eisteddfods, several times gaining a place in vocal and piano sections. Over her years at AMS Lucy developed a keen interest in composition and decided to continue her studies after high school. She successfully applied for a place at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and 4 years of study and 3 scholarships later, she graduated with a Bachelor of Music Composition, 1st Class Honours.While maintaining her interest in art music since leaving the Con, Lucy has composed for a variety of interesting events including the Kammarklang concert in 2010, short films and television commercials. Lucy is currently working as a song writer for the Japanese production company HΛL – a company responsible for writing and producing some of Japan’s biggest selling records. Her present work schedule is writing J-pop and K-pop songs for a variety of established and up and coming artists. Lucy attended the AMS 21st Birthday picnic with her parents, sister – and husband! (which makes some of us feel just a little ancient…)
Elias Constantopedos started in one of Miss Michelle’s first ever classes at Randwick in 1990 when he was 6 years of age – and studied music at AMS for many years. Elias attended our very first AMS CAMP in 1993 and was involved in everything at AMS – concerts, composition workshops, eisteddfods and exams. Elias continued in class while he attended the Conservatorium High School, and went on to a Bachelor of Music Degree in Piano and Composition at the Con. He trained as an AMS teacher and became the popular ‘Mr Elias’ – teaching at Randwick & Dulwich Hill. Elias moved to New York in 2009 and recently received his Masters in Composition (Film Scoring) from New York University, along with the Elmer Bernstein Award in Film Scoring. Since arriving in New York, his works have been presented at National Gallery of Art, SVA Theare, Tribeca Cinemas, Le Poisson Rouge, the Flea, the Drom, the Brooklyn Festival, the Royal Danish Ballet, TISCH Dance, TISCH Journalism and the JACK Quartet. In the summer of 2010 Elias received a scholarship for the Boulanger summer program in Paris. Recently he scored the fashion week documentary “The TENTS,” and was commissioned to write for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in 2012. Elias is now living in NYC and working with film and advertising directors, liaising with composers & clients.
