Antill
/ˈæntɪl/ (say 'antil)

noun
Sir John Henry, 1904–86, Australian composer; best known for the ballet suite Corroboree (1944).
John Antill studied the violin and composition at the NSW State Conservatorium of Music, Sydney, and later became a member of both the Conservatorium Orchestra and the ABC Symphony Orchestra, a small group from which ultimately the Sydney Symphony Orchestra evolved. In 1934 he joined the staff of the Australian Broadcasting Commission and was its federal music editor from 1950 until his retirement in 1970. He was knighted in 1981. Corroboree is one of the first Australian pieces to blend Aboriginal and Western music.
