Peggy Glanville-Hicks Address
The New Music Network established the Peggy Glanville-Hicks Address in 1999 in honour of one of Australia's great international composers. It is an annual forum for ideas relating to the creation and performance of Australian music. In the spirit of the great Australian composer Peggy Glanville-Hicks, an outstanding advocate of Australian music delivers the address each year, challenging the status quo and raising issues of importance in new music.
In the past 10 years, the annual Address has become one of Australiaís most established and respected events for contemporary practice, providing a platform to express important issues and challenges facing contemporary music today. Due to its positive response within the music community it has been opened to the general public to attend. The Address is the single most important national forum for contemporary music public discourse.
If you would like to attend the Address contact the Manager to reserve your place.

Learning to Listen
Musicians are sound makers. But thatís only half the story: a great musician is also a consummate listener. Being deeply attentive, hearing complexity, and noticing subtlety are not just professional music practices, but tenets for living. Learning to listen has radical potential.
