ANNA GOLDSWORTHY (pictured above) presents 'The Lost Art of Listening: an evening of music and conversation'

Is classical music still relevant? Does it have anything to offer us in today's world?

Can we find the time for it? Anna Goldsworthy argues that this great art form is more necessary than ever, using musical examples.

Described by The Australian as a ‘musical ambassador,’ Anna Goldsworthy is one of Australia’s most acclaimed and versatile musicians. Celebrated as a pianist, she is acclaimed also as a memoirist, essayist, playwright, librettist, and festival director.
