Celebration of Fine Music

In Conversation

Simon KenwayPacific Opera, founded a decade ago by former Opera Australia principal Christine Douglas, is under threat of closure as funding and private donations dry up. The company has over the years launched the careers of many young singers and is a vital springboard for singers dreaming of a career in opera. More than 70 have become professional singers with Opera Australia and other esteemed international companies over the past 10 years. On Wednesday, November 2nd at 2.00pm Michael Morton-Evans will be In Conversation with the company’s artistic director, Simon Kenway. He vows that Pacific Opera will not go quietly into the night, but admits they need help. Join us on Wednesday for this important conversation. 

Fine Music 102.5 presenter Michael Morton-Evans is your host for In Conversation. The show features the stories behind the sounds. In the hour long program Michael meets some of the world's great musicians, singers, composers, conductors along with up-and-comers and those who influence the arts landscape. If you have missed recent In Conversation programs, visit this page to stream replays - listen here.

With two theatrical plays about healthcare, fifteen musical albums and a children’s book – the ways in which Hush works to engage their audience and supporters continues to grow. As does their influence in changing a system at the centre of the human experience – healthcare.
