“Australia’s music is as diverse and as vast as the geographically remote Pacific continent itself.
“Its composers are a rare species much like the exotic flora and fauna and the Aboriginal people who have flourished on its shores over thousands of years.
“Celebrating Australian Music pays tribute to its composers both past and present whether native-born or emigré, many of whom I have known or still know personally.
“By performing this music we celebrate their individuality and their integrity and proudly claim them as a prize jewel in Australia’s growing sense of cultural heritage.”
Wendy Hiscocks, Artistic Director
