Major Lessons and Conclusions:

·        Australian artists can be confident that the work we are producing is comparable with what is offered at an international level. As a music community, there is no reason to be self-conscious and we should be encouraged to perform with greater risks and greater expressive range.

 

·       Multi-disciplinary art making is where the industry is aesthetically heading and where the greatest amount of audience interest lies. Australian orchestras and ensembles should be encouraged to collaborate with a wide variety of art forms and to develop formal partnerships. Multidisciplinary productions should be increasingly the focus of regular programming.

 

·     Australian tertiary institutions and music conservatoriums need to produce musicians who are skilled across a diverse portfolio. The musician of the future needs to be knowledgeable about all mediums of artistic expression and to be experienced at workshopping and developing works beyond their own instrument. The musician of the future must also possess professional freelancing and business skills.
