This World Suicide Prevention Day join Australia’s finest musicians for a special concert at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

Concert for Life will bring together musicians from the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Opera Australia Orchestra to form the ‘Orchestra for Life’ for an evening that will be one of the year’s musical highlights.

The orchestra will be conducted by Roger Benedict, Chief Conductor at the Sydney Conservatorium and Artistic Director of the Sydney Symphony Fellowship Program.

They will be joined by celebrated piano soloist Simon Tedeschi and Sydney Children’s Choir, conducted by Sam Allchurch, to present an inspiring program that includes Ravel’s Pavane, Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, and Bizet’s Carmen Suite no.1.

Presented in Association with Suicide Prevention Australia, profits from the concert will be shared between the Westerman Jilya Institute for Indigenous Mental Health and the Dr Tracy Westerman Aboriginal Psychology Scholarship Program. Delivered in partnership with WA’s Curtin University, the program aims to train more Indigenous psychologists to deliver best-practice care on-country in the highest-risk remote communities.
