APRA AMCOS is a major supporter of Nordoff-Robbins, a charitable organisation that promotes and develops the understanding, training and practice of creative music therapy. This therapy builds quality of life for those with intellectual and physical disabilities by giving an outlet of expression, improving speech and motor skills and offering social interaction. As part of this support, we facilitate:
Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition
In 2013, the competition raised $166,000 from the $50 entrance fee, all of which went to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy.
Art of Music
Art of Music auctions artworks by leading Australian artists that are inspired by songs. APRA AMCOS has bought artworks from these auctions including Ben Quilty’s portrait of Silverchair’s Daniel Johns. The funds raised support the work of Nordoff-Robbins.
