“The AWO gives Australia’s ex-pat musicians the chance to show other Australians just how proud they can be of the standard of musical training and depth of musical commitment that exists in our homeland. None of us would be where we are now without it, and there is no better way to prove this than to be able to perform together in a project such as the AWO.”
