Local classical musicians wanted

The Margaret River HEART is calling for classical musicians in the community to join the bill of locals to perform at the third Homegrown@HEART live music concert on Thursday 16 September.

Alongside creating employment opportunities, the multi-genre music program is designed to keep artists on the stage despite any pandemic related border closures.

Margaret River HEART General Manager Nicky Hansen said the next Homegrown concert is all about classical music and applicants can be either emerging or established in their craft.

“The team is particularly interested in hearing from musicians in the community who identify with having a disability. All applications are welcomed,” she said.

“Our free Young@HEART performances held in the Foyer Gallery each week draw a crowd of approximately 40 – 70 patrons every Monday.

“Many of the performances are in the classical music genre. This is a clear indication of the community’s appetite for classical music.”

The Homegrown initiative is a unique mix of music, learning and art, where artists can share ideas and collaborate on projects focusing on local talent.

“We’re delighted to be featuring Australian Baroque’s Vivalid Masterworks as part of our Homegrown classical concert, and we’re looking for locals who’d like to join them on our stage and in free workshops they’ll be offering,” Ms Hansen said.

“This is a great opportunity for emerging artists to perform alongside professional touring acts.”

Local musicians interested in performing at the classical Homegrown edition are invited to complete the following survey at to be considered for a spot.
