Who are we?
We are doctors and lawyers, we are tradies and bus drivers, teachers and farmers, we are the music community of Victoria.
Our goal is to bring together all community musicians of Victoria to celebrate community music with new Australian compositions.
Our patron, Zoe Knighton, founding member and cellist in the Flinders Quartet is a champion of community music.
Playing music together is such an invigorating way of bringing a community together no matter how large or small. Ignited by the excitement of new music, this project is one that unites and celebrates the true riches that community music delivers.
