AHE Anzac Day Concert and Covid-19
26th March 2020
Dear Friends and Supporters of the Australia House Ensemble,
We hope that you are all staying safe and well in these unprecedented times of Covid-19. There are significant challenges ahead for us all and particularly for people working in the Arts.
As you may be aware we were going to present an Anzac Day concert, but this is now not possible. However, we are exploring ways of presenting an online concert on Anzac Day, and other online events to support the Ensemble musicians and to keep making music available. Music speaks a universal language and will help us to cope with our social isolation; it will also help our musicians to survive in these difficult times. We are currently working on the Anzac Day Online Concert and will keep you posted about this and future online concerts featuring the Australia House Ensemble musicians.
Please stay safe and well- follow all the Government guidelines- and together we can walk into a new and positive future.
With all good wishes
Dr Margaret Mayston AM, AHE Founder
James Hancock, AHE Operational Manager
Rebecca Chan, AHE Lead, and all the wonderful AHE musicians
Australia House Ensemble
Australian musicians travel to Australia each year to perform in the Australian World Orchestra (AWO) and the Australian Youth Orchestra (AYO) and highly value and enjoy the opportunity to perform with fellow Australians. This is an opportunity for London/UK based musicians to have a similar experience in the place where they are living and working.
The ensemble aspires to be a world-class ensemble featuring the finest Australian musicians in London, UK and worldwide, named the “Australia House Ensemble. This ensemble will be a flagship for Australian musical excellence of which it is hoped Australia will be proud.
