INVITATION-ENQUIRY FORM
Most of Peter's live presentations are within two/three hours drive from his home in Mittagong, NSW. He does do occasional tours further afield - eg. Melbourne, Brisbane and is happy to receive enquiries from elsewhere.

INVITATIONS

IN GENERAL
My concerts and audio-visual presentations depend on invitations.
 Most invitations arise from the initiative of an individual who takes an idea to the parish council or the school staff or a conference organising committee or ....  My events are not grand events. A 'concert' might be a singing concert for adults (average 30 people) or an audio-visual presentation on 'Walking the Camino' or a concert with the school choir presented for the whole school. The venue might be a parish hall or a church or a school hall or ...  I might be singing for an agreed fee or I might be taking my chance on door takings or a combination of the two. I'm flexible and I realise that the people who invite me are not professional concert organisers. That's the way it's been since I made music my work in 1982 and, glad to say, I've got by ok. I've enjoyed being invited for hundreds of small scale events all round Australia, in Ireland and in the UK. These days my concerts are usually within a day's drive of my home in Mittagong NSW. But I can travel further afield if a tour of a few events can be arranged. I'm glad to receive enquiries that may or may not become invitations. I'll follow with some possibilities. P.K.

CHRISTMAS FAMILY CONCERTS
A season of Christmas Family Concerts with Catholic primary schools. I have been leading these concerts for many years. Schools have found that the concert I offer is refreshingly different, enjoyed by children and parents. By booking such a concert, pressure can be relieved on teachers in the end-of-year period. Perhaps your school would be interested?

THE BEATITUDES - CONCERT REFLECTION
Any time of year. A prayerful presentation that  illustrates in various ways the values of ’The Beatitudes’. Peter's songs tell stories of good people who have lived by these values, bringing mercy, compassion and justice into our world.

CONCERTS WITH CHILDREN
Daytime only or Day-Evening

I am no longer doing school visits that involve multiple sessions, singing for different age groups. But I'd be interested the hear from any school that would like to have me come and workshop with a 'concert-group' - eg the school choir, then put on a concert for the whole school in the afternoon &/or in the evening with parents invited. Advance materials would be supplied in advance to help the children learn the songs.
