    The Melbourne-based Brockman-Coleman Duo brings the shared experience of long, distinguished artistic careers to their exploration of the astonishing richness of the piano and cello repertoire, from well-known masterpieces to rarely heard gems. Miranda and Donna formed their artistic collaboration in part in homage to the late Nelson Cooke, who was one of Miranda’s teachers and a close friend and colleague of Donna’s.

    Miranda Brockman is a cellist with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and has performed as both principal cellist and soloist with many Australian orchestras. She was a founding member of award-winning Trio Anima Mundi, and she now mentors young Melbourne cellists at Monash University and for Melbourne Youth Music. Miranda has a strong commitment to regional audiences bringing chamber music to rural areas over many years.

    Donna Coleman is internationally renowned for her performances and recordings of American and twentieth century music, particularly the music of Charles Ives. Her OutBach® project explores relationships between the gamut of diverse musical styles from Indigenous to Bach to Ragtime to works composed yesterday. A dual US-AU citizen, she joined the Victorian College of the Arts as Head of Keyboard subsequent to her first visit to Australia in 1992 as a Fulbright Senior Scholar. In 2015 Donna created The Concord Trio in the USA, dedicated to the music of American composers. She is an Honorary Senior Fellow of the University of Melbourne.

    The Australian Fulbright Alumni Association is pleased to announce a save the date for its biennial conference. The 2019 Conference theme is: Global partnerships to local action.

    The Fulbright Program is a flagship example of cultural exchange aimed at increasing bi national research collaboration, cultural understanding, and the exchange of ideas. The first Fulbright Program grantees traveled overseas in 1948. Since its inception in Australia in 1949, the Fulbright Commission has awarded over 5,000 scholarships, creating a vibrant, dynamic, and interconnected network of Alumni. November 2018 – November 2019 marks a year of celebrating the Fulbright’s 70th anniversary. In this vein – our AFAA conference theme is Global Partnerships. In today’s age of globalization, the establishment of global partnerships is critical.  Countries must work together to achieve collective goals, such as tackling climate change, sustainable development, and establishing effective economic trade policy.  This one day conference will feature symposium on these topics and more.
