Benefit For Ben

Make a difference for Ben!

Ben Thompson, a victim of assault, is a 23 year old who now lives in a nursing home. Ben's family and friends are trying to raise $25,000 to keep up Ben's intensive speech, occupational and physiotherapy.

To this end, a benefit gig will be taking place at St Kilda's famed Esplanade Hotel, on September 11th, featuring some of Melbourne's best up and coming musical talent (including I Am Spartacus, The Advocates, Tim McMillan, Jason Cadd and the Gallows, The Gabriel Lynch Band and Zeptepi).

Tickets will be $15 at the door, and the door will be opening at 7.30pm!

Benefit For Ben has an LJ community. If you want to come to gig, want to help, or just want to express support, please join!

Religious Centre, Monash University, Clayton

In support of those affected by the Sichuan earthquake, the Monash University Choral Society with the Hong Kong Baptist University Choir will present a fundraising concert. The Hong Kong Baptist University Choir has a reputation as one of the best choirs in Hong Kong. The choir is currently touring Australia, and Monash University Choral Society is delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with an outstanding international choir, to help promote cultural harmony through music.

The performance on June 5th will feature a beautiful selection of choral music from both China and Australia.
Proceeds from the concert will be donated to the victims of the Sichuan earthquake disaster.

About the choirs:

Over its 46 year history, Monash University Choral Society (MonUCS) has developed a solid reputation in the musical community in Melbourne. In addition to their own performances, the choir has been invited to perform with many of Melbourne's leading music organisations including the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Choir, the University of Melbourne, Faculty of Music, the Monash University Music Department and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Founded in 1962 as a student-run choir, it has since developed a solid reputation in the musical community in Melbourne. Recent performances have included Handel's Messiah, Dvorak's Te Deum, Rachmaninov's Vespers, Mozart's Requiem, Brahms' German Requiem and the Australian premiere of Ragtime. Under the direction of conductor Nicholas Cowall, MonUCS is continuing to present a wide variety of choral repertoire that is enjoyed by its members and audience alike.

The Hong Kong Baptist University Choir was founded in 1973 to develop skills in ensemble performance and to provide opportunities for the study and performance of fine choral literature. The Choir is directed by Andrew Cheung, and has collaborated with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta and the Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra, and the Hong Kong Baptist University Orchestra in performances which included Bach Magnificat, Mozart Requiem, and "Coronation" Mass, Faure Requiem, Handel Samson and Judas Maccabaeus, Mendelssohn Christus, and the Brahms Requiem. The choir has also toured and won awards in Italy, Germany and Austria and has recorded 3 CD's.
