Mostly Mad Music was born of a desire to highlight the wonderfully therapeutic effects of music on mental health and well-being. But we also believe in the importance of giving everybody the chance to hear beautiful music. So in our first year, 2018, Mostly Mad Music’s flagship program – In Harmony – ran for the first time. We took classical music from the concert hall to people with a lived experience of mental illness and homelessness in the lead up to Mental Health Month. And we made a mini-documentary about our experience.
In 2019, we took the same idea and made it bigger and better – this time taking music to the streets and the people of Sydney. Our musicians performed pop up concerts in Martin Place, Hyde Park, Circular Quay and Darling Harbour.
Mostly Mad Music is currently in pre-production phase for our 2021 concert – to be held at Sydney Town Hall.
We are also participating in exciting research on links between anxiety and music and developing new film and documentary content.
Please get in touch if you would like to be on our mailing list and be kept up to date with our programs and services as they develop.
