    Tallowdale Music

    Tallowdale Music presents evocative works for orchestra, choir, chamber groups and contemporary ensembles by Australian composer, Jonathan Leigh Billingham.

    Billingham’s musical style fuses modern
 and traditional musical idioms to provide inspiration 
and connection with a 21st century audience. His compositions embody seemingly effortless passages of musical beauty that veil the underlying complexity of his detailed artistic works.

    Tallowdale Music produces festivals and concerts around Sydney and throughout New South Wales, including in Billingham’s hometown, Taree.

    Why Tallowdale?

    Tallowdale Tea and Tallowdale Music derive their names from the Billingham family property. ‘Tallowdale’ is a beef cattle farm, located west of Ellenborough Falls on the Bulga Plateau in New South Wales, Australia. The farm quite literally sits in a dale in the mountains and is adorned by beautiful Tallowwood trees.
