ART OF MUSIC LIVE 2013
The inaugural ART OF MUSIC LIVE concert was held on Monday 24 June 2013 in the intimate setting of The Studio at the Sydney Opera House, with an after party at the Opera Bar. Presented by Jenny Morris, ART OF MUSIC LIVE is an extension of the Art of Music series where artists choose an iconic Australian/NZ song to inspire a piece of artwork. ART OF MUSIC LIVE brings these paintings to life.
The incredible line-up included Tim Finn, Suze Demarchi, Josh Pyke, Iva Davies, Ian Moss, Katie Noonan, Dragon, Dave Mason (The Reels), Reg Mombassa and Pete O'Doherty (Mental as Anything) plus a special performance from the Sydney Children's Choir.
The night finished off with Iva Davies performing 'Great Southern Land' which had previously been painted by Ken Johnson and Dragon performing 'Dreams of Ordinary Men' which was the inspiration behind Peter Kingston's artwork, plus a sneaky 'April Sun in Cuba' which had everyone up on their feet!
The music was mind-blowing and the night was a roaring success, raising important funds for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy who use the power of music to transform lives.
