A Message from the Executive Director
We continue to offer some truly beautiful events on the horizon with free tickets for flood-affected members of our community made possible with the support of Musica Viva and Southern Cross University. Coming up next is a performance by Avi Avital & Giovanni Sollima at the Whitebrook Theatre. Israeli mandolinist Avital and Italian cellist Sollima present four centuries of culture from opposite sides of the sea, sharing traditional Salento, Bulgarian, Turkish, Sephardic, Macedonian, and Italian works, whilst also forging new traditions. Come along and listen to music with world roots brought to local stages.
The “Resound our Towns” project in partnership with Resound has made deliveries of more than 250 instruments to residents of the Northern Rivers who lost their treasured musical instruments in the recent devastating floods.You can visit resound.org.au to request a new instrument, pledge an instrument or make a tax deductable cash donation. Our Flood Fee Relief program has been established to help our beautiful community maintain engagement in music tuition. To register for the fee relief program please click the button below.
