I am raising funds to start create a concert which aims to promote Australian Classical Music and bring about a unity of its culture and identity. The project will take place at the Bruno Walter Auditorium at the New York Public Library of Performing Arts on the eve of Anzac Day 2018.

The aim is to bring together Australians from abroad (especially in the U.S) and share music in a very rare occasion and environment.

The project targets a very specific aspect of art and identity in Australian culture. We have so much talent in the music that has been created in the last 100 years and especially in the last few years and it would be really an honour to showcase this on the international stage in an important day.

Donations will mainly be used to support the hiring of the venue and the funding for the costs of the concert. Any extra donations that come above the raised amount will go towards creating more opportunities for Australian works to be premiered outside of Australia.
