Four Winds Bermagui - Music In Nature

You Donors

Thank you for being an audience member,
volunteer, donor, supporter or funding partner.

Music is at the heart of Four Winds – sharing musical culture and nurturing creativity is what we do. From the examples on our website we hope you get a picture of Four Winds’ year-round activity; we are no longer simply an iconic Easter Festival. The reason is simple – the power of music can positively impact all our lives in remarkable and unexpected ways.

Four Winds sustains a year-round program of work that injects a remarkable level of ambition and quality to the musical life of the South Coast region; for artists, audiences, community groups and most importantly for the young people in our local schools, where access to great quality live music is otherwise limited.

Your donation to Four Winds is an important investment in the creativity of future generations – thank you.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the donors who have supported Four Winds to grow into the impressive organisation and facility we know and love today. Donors have been a major part of enabling the development of Natures Concert Hall, have provided a wonderful piano and provided support for our work in the community and schools which is going from strength to strength. I’m proud of Four Winds and proud to have the support of many people as ticket buyers, volunteers and donors – thank you”

David Francis

Former Executive Director, Four Winds
