Concert for Life is so much more than just a cross-discipline musical collaboration: it’s a call to action

BY JASMINE MIDDLETON

Following its debut success in 2015, the concert returns on World Suicide Prevention Day to raise awareness of the alarming rates of Indigenous youth suicide in remote Australian communities, and fundraise for the Westerman Jilya Institute for Indigenous Mental Health.

The program will feature some much-loved favourites, with Ravel’s Pavane, Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, and Bizet’s Carmen Suite No. 1, led by Roger Benedict and performed by the Orchestra for Life: the combined forces of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Opera Australia Orchestra, Sydney Children’s Choir, and piano soloist Simon Tedeschi.
