A unique brand of classical music will return to stages across Australia this year following

the announcement of a $560,000 Federal Government Grant by Federal Member for Fairfax, Ted O’Brien who made the funding grant official at a morning tea and recital last week at the Peregian Springs ‘The Pool Café’. A group of talented young musicians from the Young Mannheim Symphonists, mentored by the Australian Romantic and Classical Orchestra performed for a small audience at the Pool Café last week after the funding coup was announced. The Australian Romantic and Classical Orchestra, which is managed from the Sunshine Coast, will use the massive funding boost to significantly expand their national tour in 2022 and build their education capacity. Mr O’Brien said that the funding highlighted the Federal Government’s support for the arts and live music industry with nearly $1.5 million delivered for the sector in Fairfax over the last year alone. “Musicians have been held back from doing what they love over the past two years just as audiences have been starved of the joys of live entertainment and performances,” Mr O‘Brien said.
