The world of fine music has changed. In the current climate musicians have to adapt. Artists, pupils and audiences must react to rapidly changing conditions or face an uncertain future. A proven innovator with strong community and industry support and partners, I will now launch a new website hub featuring new musical content for online audiences, oboe lessons and more.

Using quality associated artists and my established local technical team, I will record exclusive chamber concerts for downloading and will offer exclusive small group in-house chamber concerts in future when conditions allow. In addition this website will showcase online resources and links, regular blogs, interviews and also, commission exclusive subscriber content. Hiring digital marketing experts will help build the audience through my proven reputation for innovation and delivery, creating a valuable source of income for local business and musicians, a service for South Australia and for a worldwide audience.

”I am proud to be a supporter of Celia’s vision… a vital demonstration to Australia’s creative community of expression, innovation, work ethic with a relevant commercial approach… ” – Rod Tamlyn, Creative Director, Original Works

” a passionate and inspiring person.. a world class asset for South Australia…in the development of a generation….” – Norman Gillespie, Pinchgut Opera

Your tax deductible donations will be used to create and extend website functionality, new content through employing local musicians to perform and record and to commission the creation of new video content on digital portals employing local small businesses. Using Celia’s last reserves through generous industry partners and a short campaign, this project can be quickly started, generating income, providing online teaching, downloadable content, affordable subscription and different learning options.

Achieving the target would enable me to build a really worthwhile and useful website that allows continued teaching and enables me to involve other local musicians through a public website where we will also have subscriber services for exclusive music content, and private lessons. By donating you support the wider community as well as myself and my associate artists. The arts contribute so much enjoyment to our community and this micro initiative aims to contribute in a brave new way. Support us kindly and everyone can gain.

“Adelaide is undergoing a healthy chamber music revival… The newest group is Celia Craig’s… Artaria. Craig, herself a top level musician who won a Gramophone Magazine Editor’s Award before being recruited by the ASO, has picked another of the star violinists who happen to be based presently in this town, Elizabeth Layton… Says Craig, ‘Our feeling was that we want chamber music to be an absolute joy” 
Graham Strahle, Adelaide Review July 15 2013

Five of Australia’s world class musicians unite to explore some of the extensive English repertoire for oboe and strings. Combining a wealth of musical experience, Elizabeth, Anne, Caroline, Michael and Celia can list Australian String Quartet, Nash Ensemble, Australian Chamber Orchestra, St Martin’s in the Fields, Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, London Chamber Players, much BBC, Abbey Road (and many other) Studios, Selby and Friends, among their credits and close working connections with many of the giants of the music world.

“…innate musicianship and flawless technical mastery…Artaria’s projected CD of works by English composers should prove an absolute delight.” Anthony Steel, AM
