Dr Allan ZavodRalph Plarre (Sustainability Ambassador/ Business Speaker)

Excerpts from 20 April, 2011 Blog Post - Musical Intervals: "[My piano teacher] introduced me to another student of his, Allan Zavod. Allan - now Dr Zavod - is a well-respected composer and musician. (He showed a bit of talent back then too!) That day Allan taught me how to play the boogie base and when I play it I often think of him. <...> Allan and I weren't to cross paths again until recently. And in an interesting twist it was sustainability that brought his music back into my life. Allan composed the Environmental Symphony for the Banksia awards, which he played at the awards night the year after I accepted the Gold Banksia prize on behalf of our bakery. <...> We've both since played at a concert I arranged with Steinway Pianos. I like to think our piano teacher was pretty happy with us that day." (Sorry, this external link is no longer online)
