Support the Future of Australian Music

Annual Giving Campaign

It is with a wonderful sense of pride that I have seen our National Education Programs flourish since they began eight years ago. Thanks to the support of our patrons, our activities have grown exponentially, cultivating the musical growth of young people across Australia.

It is essential that students have access to a music education and I am particularly proud that our National Education Programs continue to reach further into regional communities and disadvantaged areas.

Our vibrant Emerging Artists and regional touring orchestra, ACO2, now reaches a wide regional audience, this year touring Western Australia, Canberra, NSW and Tasmania, hosting workshops and education concerts for regional school students.   

Our schools programs strive to reach children from all backgrounds. This year we will facilitate primary school workshops at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, Waterloo as well as Soldiers’ Settlement Public School, Matraville (both in partnership with the Australian Children’s Music Foundation) where previously there weren’t any music lessons.  At the secondary level, we continue to reach young string players through our workshops, concerts and by expanding our online learning resources.

The importance of music education must not be undervalued; it gives young people the opportunity to broaden their horizons and experiment with creativity and has the potential to contribute to personal development and wellbeing. Recent studies bear this out. It is my sincere hope that we will be able to continue delivering our vastly important programs. I hope you will join us to make this possible by supporting our National Education Programs.
