Matched Giving: 2018 Support a commission program

Commissioning and promoting new Australian music


$100 and above

This year we invited our Festival community to share the joy of 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 to be performed in Concert #4: Four Seasons in the Fitters' Workshop on April 28 at 8pm.

This year four of our most enthusiastic supporters pledged up to $10,000 to match contributions received before 31 March 2018.

We are delighted to announce that a total of $10,850 was raised thereby attracting the full $10,000 offered as matching funds.

22 individual donors have earned themselves a spot in harp heaven!  And of course they will receive an invitation to an exclusive event with Mary Finsterer during the Festival.  A list of those who are supporting the new work from Mary can be found here.

We would like to thank all of you who so generously responded to the matched giving appeal, with a special thank you to Margaret and Peter Janssens and Margaret and John Saboisky for providing the inspiration!
