ASRC Benefit on International Day of Peace - featuring numerous artists
More information & bookings
Some of Melbourne's finest jazz musicians and the multicultural ensemble Musical Journeys have united in support of those seeking asylum in this country.
Following in the footsteps of Jazz artists who have used their music to spotlight injustices since the Civil Rights era, local jazz artists will perform dedications to those fleeing war and persecution in search of peace. Musicians include Joe O'Connor (piano), Sam Anning (bass), Danny Fischer (drums), Jackie Bornstein (voice), Travis Woods (trumpet), Philip Rex (bass), Helen Catanchin (voice), Anton Delecca (saxophone), Chris Vizard (trombone) and Andrea Keller (piano).
Musical Journeys - a vibrant multicultural ensemble with members from around the world - will also be performing and sharing music from their diverse backgrounds. Established under the umbrella of the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre (ASRC), Musical Journeys will demonstrate the power of cross-cultural collaborations through their spirited performance of traditional and original songs.
All proceeds from the night will be donated to the ASRC, Australia’s largest provider of aid, advocacy and health services to people seeking asylum.
