What's happening in 2014?
The DRMC wants to hear from musicians, composers, community groups, schools and individuals about new music ideas and projects for 2014. Does the community need a composers' collective, a hurey gurdey orchestra or even a kerosene tin percussion group? Perhaps there are hidden bassoons, oboes and cor anglais players just waiting for an opportunity. Tell us at drmc.org.au or phone: Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays 9754 65
