“It is a shame there aren’t more opportunities for ex-pat musicians to perform at home. Looking through the names, it is heartening to see home-grown talent funnelled back through this project. This talent has flourished elsewhere, which is a testament to Australia’s musical education, and shows the need for ventures like this.”
