This year, Halcyon celebrates 20 years of performing and advocating for new classical music. We are seeking funds to assist us in presenting our 20th birthday performances to our local audiences and to continue to create new recordings and media for our wider audience in 2018.
Halcyon has been a major force in creating and promoting new chamber music for voice for the last 20 years. Active since 1998, Halcyon has presented consistently lauded concerts, produced an impressive recording catalogue and been involved in advocacy, including roles with the New Music Network, mentoring and educating the next generation of composers and performers and having conversations to grow awareness of this intimate art form. Believing new compositions deserve to have a long life beyond their first performances and committed to making this a reality, Halcyon now invests considerable energy in creating recordings and other online media that are helping this music reach a more global audience.
Halcyon is seeking additional funds to support 2018 performances and recording projects and travel costs to film more interviews for our In Conversation With… series, a YouTube resource of short video interviews with composers about their work and works, in Melbourne.
Your donations will enable us to continue presenting our high-calibre performances and help us to continue growing our newer audio and media projects. These resources mean more people can experience Halcyon but also can find out more about the creators of the works and the people and personalities behind the music we perform.
