Tarik O’Regan – another old Elmhurstian!

Elmhurst School for Boys

11th May 2012

We were really pleased today to welcome back to Elmhurst an eminent composer and old boy of the school. Tarik O’Regan was a pupil at Elmhurst during the 1980s, and confesses that his biggest musical contributions at the school were vigorous performances on the drums during the school musical!
Tarik is now based in Cambridge, England and New York in the USA. He has written, and is writing, works for the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Dutch Royal Ballet and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London. He has just returned from Utah where one of his symphonies was being performed in Salt Lake City.

Tarik spoke to the boys in assembly today, telling them about his time at Elmhurst and describing how he went on to study music and to become such a well-respected name in the classical music world. The boys in Junior Choir responded with a spirited song to send him on his way.

We are extremely grateful to Mr O’Regan for visiting us – and we are all extremely inspired by his success and his charming, down-to-earth manner. We wish him the very best for the future.
