Conductor, repetiteur and academic Harrison Collins, presents a farewell show, You’re Gonna Love Tomorrow, at UNSW before joining Penn State University’s Master of Fine Arts degree on a full scholarship.

You’re Gonna Love Tomorrow, features four of Sydney’s up-and-coming stars Bridget Paterson, Caitlin Rose, Christopher Dale White, and Gavin Brown under the expert direction of Collins who will take audiences on a journey through an intimate hour of cabaret from seldom performed Floyd Collins through to favourites Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Cole Porter.

Highlights of the program includes three ensemble numbers: Prelude from City of Angels, You’re Gonna Love Tomorrow from Follies, and Songs for a New World.

Harrison Collins completed his Masters of Music in Orchestral Conducting at the Sydney Conservatorium in 2017 after completing combined undergraduate degrees in Advanced Science and Music (Performance) at UNSW as a classical baritone. Collins is one of only two directors-to-be to be admitted to this prestigious programme which gives participants the opportunity to  direct a show in New York in their third year.

Harrison is an experienced music director and pianist, having worked on more than twenty music theatre and operatic productions as repetiteur, music director, conductor, chorus master and sound designer. His recent credits include music director for Sweet Charity (Willoughby Theatre Company), Carousel (Sydney University Music Theatre Ensemble), Company (UNSW Music Theatre Society), Spring Awakening (UNSW MTS), assistant conductor for Così fan tutte (Opera School, Sydney Conservatorium), and assistant music director for Wicked (Willoughby Theatre Company).

Singing in choirs from a young age, Harrison has also performed as chorister and soloist with a wide range of ensembles including the Sydney Symphony Orchestra (singing the role of Der Steuermann in Tristan Und Isolde), and both the UNSW and Sydney Conservatorium chamber choirs, including solo roles in Israel in Egypt, Faure’s Requiem and Mozart’s ‘Credo’ Mass.
