Looking back to 2019 and looking forward to SOON

Some Symphony for Life kids and parents saw two fantastic orchestras in 2019. Live. In person.
They had free tickets to brilliant concerts by the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
Our children are learning to play the instruments of the orchestra and they have their own beginning orchestras. But most of the children and their parents had never heard a live performance by a professional orchestra.

End of 2019 student concert

2019 ended very well for Symphony for Life. Our program has taken off and we are sustaining good progress with lots of appreciation and enthusiasm for the project. It is exciting to see the engagement of the parents in the learning which means a wonderful sense of community is starting to develop.

Huge thank you to supporters who attended our Macquarie Foundation Fundraiser

On Monday October 21st there was an inspiring evening of music, song and stories to highlight the work of our Foundation. The event was made possible by the amazing work of The Macquarie Foundation who not only hosted the event in their Martin Place HQ but also matched every dollar raised during the week of the Fundraiser. We hope to share with you very soon the final amount raised, in the meantime here are some images from a memorable evening.

A Big Night Of Music, Fun And Community

The end of term 2 saw our first big combined orchestras concert for 2019. Both the Freedman Youth Orchestra, and the Paramatta Children’s Orchestra took to the stage. Each orchestra showcased what they had worked out throughout the year so far, and then combined for a final item for the evening involving over 70 young string players.

Parents, friends and family all attended and there was a real sense of community and admiration for what the kids are achieving.
