Since its inception, CWS has raised over $5000 for beyondblue.
For each concert in our beyondblue concert series, we pledge a $500 donation. This pledge is made even before a single ticket is sold, and is made despite the ongoing costs of running the orchestra.
Why? Our donation money to beyondblue goes specifically towards helping Australian farmers battling with anxiety and depression. This is a nod to the heritage of the artistic director Geoff Grey, who is the ‘son of a shearer’ and grew up on the land. As city folk, we think it’s important to give something back to the farmers who make our lives so comfortable.
As a CWS audience member, we thank you for supporting live music, contemporary composers, and of course, Aussie farmers.
