In 2018, we invite our Festival community to collectively support the Festival commission and share the joy and satisfaction in creating a new work by Mary Finsterer, our 2018 composer-in-residence. Conceived for the Seven Harp Ensemble directed by Alice Giles AO, Mary is working on a new piece earmarked for Concert #4: The Seasons in Fitters' Workshop on April 28 at 7.30pm.

Four of our most enthusiastic supporters have pledged to match ALL contributions received before 31 March 2018. This means that by donating to the Support a Commission program in 2018, your donation will be DOUBLED!

Our Festival has been a trend-setter in commissioning, fostering and presenting a broad range of Australian music. We are honoured to be working with a composer of the calibre of Mary Finsterer this year. Your contribution in the form of a donation, large or small, is not only appreciated - it will earn you spot in harp heaven!
