“I am so excited about the AWO. For many of us, our entire career has existed overseas, and I have always felt such a longing for an opportunity to perform back in Australia.

“A simple idea that will undoubtedly have both staggering effects on the Australian classical music scene and humbling effects on its partakers. I cannot think of another project I’d rather be involved in. This is an amazing chance for us as ex-pat musicians to not only make music in Australia again, but to invest in the future generations of musicians.”
