Voluntarily managed by musicians for musicians, Friends of Music Series (FOMS) continues the fundraising spirit for establishing St. George's Anglican Church as an accessible quality performance space for emerging musicians. Here are the faces behind the scenes.
Concerts and Digital content Coordinator. Pianist.
"Connecting people through music is one of my passions as a musician. To me, being the FOMS Coordinator is essentially a role to collaborate and inspire collaboration between musicians, and between musicians and their communities. This collaborative spirit is presented as 10 concerts presented to you for the 2017 FOMS. Furthermore, to help emerging composers and performers with their work through FOMS is a very exciting time for the Melbourne music scene, as more musicians and communities are becoming more aware of the power of music in fostering community wellbeing. An extension of this collective spirit is having a team that support this series, whose ideas blossom with the support from the St. George's Anglican Church, our friends and patrons."
Marketing Management. Pianist.
"Music is a powerful and uplifting way to inspire hope in our everyday lives. Establishing the Friends of Music at St George's can really enrich the community. I'm so excited to be a part of it!"
Audience Development. Composer.
"I am captivated by the transformative power of music - how a person makes significant personal connections and makes meaning out of it. I am also fascinated with the techniques of composition and how these translate into a piece of art that moves people.
This drives me to compose.
Having a platform for new music composition will assist in the expression of this creative process. The concerts of Friends of Music Series will be a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with the team and the broader community, to further enrich the life of the community, Composers, and Performers, through the sharing of local musicians' special connections with music."
Community Engagement. Pianist
"I'm a local piano teacher and accompanist who is passionate about promoting a local performance space that enables my students to access quality performances by emerging Australian musicians as well as foster their love of music."
