Southern Hemisphere CentreForce Family

Thanks to the good people & their kind generosity of WASBF, Pro Sound Foundation & The Civic hotel Inglewood. A new musical story in Perth is about to start. Here is our story so far.

Like many hundreds and thousands of people around the world, Perth arts industry was brought to its knees early part of last year. Although Perth has remained overall well protected and has not suffered mass disruption and loss of life unlike many other countries. The arts industry is struggling to get up and running again.

Without people or organizations like WASBF & Pro Sound Foundation, quite frankly there just wouldn’t be any chance of ‘The Southern Hemisphere CentreForce Family’ comprehending holding a free community music event in 2021.
