A community-based orchestra, The Melbourne Sinfonia was formed in 1990 and they perform orchestral music at a high standard from the Baroque, classical, Romantic and Modern repertoire. They do not receive any sponsorship or grants from government bodies or private organisations. More importantly they are an auxiliary of the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne and donate profits from their concerts to the 'Gatehouse', a Centre Against Sexual Assault (CASA) that provides assessment, treatment, advocacy services, crisis services and ongoing support to children and adolescents who have been sexually abused.

I leave you with a video clip of internationally respected music educator and conductor Richard Gill OAM. In this presentation he argues the case for igniting the imagination through music and for making our own music. Through some illustrations you will learn the relationship between music and our imagination.
