Featuring Maestro David Helfgott, patron of Pianos for the People, plus Yantra de Vilder and the Northern Rivers Ephemera Choir, Pianos for the People will launch in Mullumbimby this week.
The Northern Rivers Ephemera Choir has come together for the first time in the last few weeks preparing for this special event, and will be joining forces with members of The Central Coast Ephemera Choir, connecting the two communities through song and pianos.
All the pianos that are being delivered to the flood victims have come from the Central Coast.
Since arriving from the Central Coast in August 2022, Yantra de Vilder has been working with local musicians, and her latest Art Music Film After The Flood is an official selection at the Berlin Art Film Festival, featuring a collaboration with Leigh Carriage. This song will have its debut performance with The Ephemera Choir on the evening at this event.
Helfgott will be playing from his classical repertoire and The Ephemera Choir will be singing original songs composed by Yantra de Vilder.
The Mullumbimby RSL was one of the main centres for flood relief in Mullumbimby, so this concert is a wonderful way to activate the space with art and music.
The Ingenuity Sculpture Award will be a feature of the afternoon activities beginning at 3pm, with a banquet dinner from 5.30pm.
In partnership with Creative Mullumbimby and Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce.
