Anzac Commemorative performance
The performance will provide a moving context to the commemorations on Anzac Day through the music, songs and letters of service personnel. It will include material from the Memorial’s collection of First World War songs appropriate for the Centenary, and songs associated with a century of service to the present day and interspersed with readings from diaries and letters. We hope that it will be televised live nationally and recorded in partnership with a media broadcaster.
The performance will take place on the Memorial grounds. Renowned Australian musician and advocate for veterans’ affairs, John Schumann, will be the creative director and will bring together a cast of outstanding Australian performers.
