In the classical arena Bill has conducted major symphony orchestras including the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestras. In Australia he is well represented via film scores and television series including Mother and Son, Come in Spinner, Brides of Christ and Young Einstein.
