In previous years, Phorm Interiors has sent gifts and cards.
This year, we have instead decided to donate the christmas budget to 'The Australian National Academy of Music'.
The Australian National Academy of Music is the country's centre of excellence for music performance training. The Academy takes in from around Australia its most talented and highly trained young musicians, and sends out into the world artists with the musical skill, imagination and passion to make their voices heard.
Having consolidated its position in 2009, the Academy is now strongly placed to realise its vision of being one of the world's great music training academies.
In 2010 ANAM presented over 170 public events and performances.
It brought 61 international and Australian artists to South Melbourne to work with its 59 students and 15 members of the permanent Resident Faculty, in a training program that included over 2,500 individual lessons, 200 classes, and countless rehearsals and coaching sessions.
assisting interstate students in relocating to Melbourne; enabling the purchase of scores and sheet music for the music library; contributing to the 'Strings & Things' program, assisting in the maintenance of students' musical instruments.
