We were recently joined by the winner of the 2019 Blakeman National Composition Prize, Brooke Green to workshop her composition From The Heart with the Australia Ensemble UNSW and Artistic Chair, Dr Paul Stanhope.


About From The Heart

From The Heart was written in August-September 2019 when various voices for and against the Uluru Statement From The Heart were being raised in the Australian media, including, at times what seems like a merry-go-round of political mollification and inaction. - words from composer Brooke Green Ian Munro
