The world of fine music has changed. In the current climate, musicians must 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, Celia’s upgraded new digital platform will feature new musical content in order to keep innovating, creating and presenting live music, and teaching.

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

“Celia Craig is one of the most energising and interesting musicians I’ve ever worked with, and her premiere performances of the Concerto I wrote for her have been a highlight of my own career. A great ambassador for her own instrument, the oboe, her enthusiasm and knowledge spreads much further … always fascinating to follow her latest new directions, and musical exploration comes naturally to her. We’re fortunate to have this unusual artist in our midst…”– Judith Weir CBE, Master of The Queens Music

”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.

By donating you can support the wider community as well as Celia and her associated 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.
