Why I play Chamber Music -
"The greatest joy for me in any form of music making is the sense of union. Union with the music itself, with the musicians I am playing with, with the audience I am playing to and with the space I am playing in."
Flautist Sally Walker on the importance of hope through music
"I am reminded about the exit of the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, where the exit opens out into a forest of trees, representing new life. Night and Now is, simply put, a journey from darkness to light. From despair to hope. We all need hope."
Judith Clingan "So Good a Thing", 50 Years of Music Making in Canberra
"...Judy wanted to celebrate 50 years of her making music in Canberra. Former students (of which there are more than a thousand) were alerted to this three-day-festival. The number of people who took leave from work, travelled from afar and rehearsed and performed as volunteers was a testament to the impact Judy has had on all of our lives."
