August was a great month for our pilot disability stream of Learning and Access programs.
Our friends from Calvary Care, Wintringham Housing and Wesley Mission visited the Centre for a range of concerts, talks and relaxed performances.
In August, we were able to provide complimentary tickets for a range of Silent Auctions and Trivia Nights for Our Lady Help of Christians School, Giant Steps School and Therapy Centre, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Langwarrin Park Preschool.
On Tuesday 13 August, Melbourne Guitar Quartet joined us for a special Primrose Potter Salon concert in the Relaxed Performance series for 2019.
What's a relaxed performance?
The 2019 Great Romantics Competition saw 34 applications from four states across Australia. It was a very difficult decision for our selection judge to narrow a competitive field to only seven finalists.
We are excited to announce our musicians for Saturday 29 September 2019:
On Thursday 29 August, the Primrose Potter Salon was filled with brand new music, as Artistic Director Ben Opie and musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) worked with children who are blind or have low-vision to bring their 3D musical scores to life. In partnership with Vision Australia, the Sound Matters workshop saw simple craft materials become intricate compositions.
