Music, Mental Health and Mozart

World class soloist Filip Pogady and the Australian Phoenix Quartet in a unique setting

Supported by the City of Sydney

Want to come and hear Mozart in a beautifully intimate setting played by some of the greatest musicians in the world? Want to see a moving short film piece about the power of music to connect people and touch hearts? Want to hear the world premiere of “Hope” by Jenna Pratt? Well Mostly Mad Music is holding a concert during mental health month where you can do all those things. The concert will feature a short film piece called the “Sound of Empathy” followed by amazing music performed by international soloist Filip Pogady and the Australian Phoenix Quartet, including the world premiere of Jenna Pratt’s “Hope”.

Mostly Mad Music is a charity that tries to shine a brighter and more optimistic light on what it’s like to live with mental illness. The charity uses the power and passion of classical music to raise awareness about mental health; creating communities, encouraging empathy and fostering connection. Mostly Mad Music CEO Esther says, “rather than dwelling on the negative aspects of mental illness, we emphasise the connection, hope and beauty that should be part of recovery. Composers like Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Brahms and Schumann are just some of the classical composers who have inspired the world with music created during periods of mental illness. Some scholars even argue that music creativity is an adaptive response to these conditions.”

Our concert is a truly unique experience to celebrate the importance of good mental health for everyone. Get in quick and register. Tickets going fast. Book your free ticket now.

Please arrive at 3pm sharp for a 3.30pm start.
