National Carillon, Canberra, wins APRA AMCOS Good Music Citizen award

Friday, 17 Nov 2017


Our first Good Music Citizen Award has been awarded to the National Carillon in Canberra for its commitment to developing new works by Australian composers.

This new initiative was developed to reward Australian businesses and organisations licensed with APRA AMCOS who have advocated for music and culture. This could include support for live music and local content or through demonstrating an innovative use of music in their venue. 

“The work of the people behind this venue aligns strongly with our own mission to invest in the future of Australian music,” said Catherine Giuliano, Director, General Licensing at APRA AMCOS.

“Adding to that, this venue has consistently been fully licensed to use music. That level of respect for the works owned by music creators, here and overseas, is to be applauded.”

The Australian Miniatures for Carillon this year formed part of the Canberra International Music Festival and then went on to the World Carillon Federation Congress in Barcelona, showcasing Australian talent.

Lyn Fuller has been a part of the Carillon's music development for over 20 years. With the recent award, Lyn says "it's great to see what we've done has received some accolades."
