The Music Council of Australia is seeking entries for its new music awards, celebrating the vitality of music in Australia’s coastal communities, outback towns, remote Indigenous communities.
The Music in Communities Awards will applaud the Australian people and organisations involved in community music projects.
“Community choirs, drum circles, youth groups, town bands, orchestras, ukelele ensembles, ‘weekend warrior’ rock programs – these new awards look at who is spreading the music bug throughout Australia,” said Dr Richard Letts, executive director, Music Council of Australia.
“Whatever the activity, we are looking especially for projects that have had a strong impact on the community’s musical life.”
Entries close on 29th February 2008. For more information contact Tina Broad on 0439 022 257.
