Carroll (Adelaide) and Prof. Marc Battier (Paris). There will be several
concerts of Messiaen's music, including piano recitals by Michael
Kieran-Harvey and Larry Sitsky and an organ recital by Phillip Gearing.

The conference will be held in Toowoomba, Australia - in the mountains one
and a half hours west of Brisbane. Toowoomba is a lovely historic town
with beautiful views, less than two hours drive from the Gold Coast.

possible further publication in the form of an edited book to be compiled
later in 2008.
