Welcome to Paradise! Classical Chamber Music has been my passion as a violinist as long as I can remember! I have traveled the world, on stages grand and humble, and came to this tropical haven twelve years ago on a sabbatical from my life as a professional violinist in London. After finding Cairns, Far North Queensland, and performing to a sold-out house in my Australian debut recital, I fell in love with this majestic spot. The wonders of the Great Barrier Reef meld with the mysticism and grandeur of the rainforest- and amongst this backdrop, I decided to create my own Concert Series. My music friends-international colleagues from my colorful career -now come to me from all over the globe, and together, we make the most glorious music, (and have a lot of fun) both on and off stage!

Our goal is to attempt at restoring some normality to these children’s lives, and to rekindle the inalienable joyous disposition they so disserve as children without the burden of anxiety and concern the Fukushima radiation relentlessly reminds them thereof. In some areas of Fukushima, the impact of radiation has become so concerning, children are simply not even allowed to step one foot outside of their own homes in fear of radiation poisoning. We hope to give the children of Fukushima an opportunity for a further enriching cultural experience as a result of their time spent in Australia. We are hoping that the children who participate in this humanitarian effort will regain hope for the future, and to salvage the potential in manifesting their dreams and ambitions alike.
