Event description

Art of Music is an incredible event that consistently sets the standard for a boutique highly anticipated fundraiser.

Founded by Jenny Morris, OAM, Art of Music is pure creative genius and the most memorable fundraiser on the Sydney event circuit.

Art of Music takes Australia’s music royalty and pairs them up with Australia’s greatest living artists, uniting them with one of THE most inspirational of charitable causes.

A group of top contemporary visual artists each choose a song or musical artist to inspire a piece of artwork. The artists take their inspiration from the melody, the lyrics, the album cover or even the singer. It’s entirely up to them as to how they interpret the music. The artwork is then auctioned during a gala dinner in the spectacular Grand Court of the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

This year’s amazing visual artists are (in alphabetical order):

Alan Jones

Alex Seton

Ben Quilty

Holly Greenwood

Joan Ross

Laura Jones

Leila Jeffreys

Todd Hunter

Vincent NamatjiraΒ OAM

Each artist’s musical subject will be announced shortly.

Art of Music 2024 will once again include some very special musical performances highlighting the works of art on display on the night. Details of those performers, and our MC, will also be announced shortly.

β€œArt of Music is not to be missed. Amazing art. Amazing music. Put them together and the result is truly magical” – Jimmy Barnes

β€œOne of the most inspiring and enjoyable nights of the year, Art of Music combines iconic musicians in full swing, celebrated artists and their and their latest works, great food, fine wine and terrific company” – Hugo Weaving

Jenny Morris said β€œI can’t believe we've been presenting the AOM event since 2006! I can’t believe it because in all that time I’ve never once been worried about being able to put together a high quality collection of world class Australian/NZ works and this year is no different.

β€œThe generosity of the artists is huge and so are their talents … always the cream of the crop. It’s the reason the same calibre of musicians are drawn to performing on the night, the combination of music and visual art is hard to say no to.

β€œBut why do these scions of the cultural world put their heart and soul into donating their talents? They do it for NORO. NORO provides music therapy to children and adults with many different types of special needs, and as we all know by now, it WORKS.

Ms Morris added, β€œI hope you’ll join me on what will be another unique, entertaining and satisfying night with stars of the art and music worlds (and we let a few well-known actors in too).

β€œThank you to those who are regulars and thank you to first timers, you won’t regret it!”

As well as the opportunity of bidding on works from the 2024 Art of Music Collection, there will also be some incredible raffle prizes on offer at the event.

All proceeds from the Gala Dinner and Charity Auction go to Noro to provide its internationally recognised music programs to assist those less advantaged. Registered Music Therapists use the power of music in live and interactive sessions to help people cope with the struggles of living with a wide range of needs. These include children and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities, autism, trauma, illness, Dementia, mental health issues, behaviour disorders and learning difficulties.

Noro sees over 2,500 people a week, from small babies to elderly Australians, using music in a variety of programs, including Mini Rockers for Early Childhood, Guitars for Vets to support the mental health of returned Service Men and Women, Guitars for Firies to support the mental health of RFS Volunteers, all in addition to music therapy programs in their own clinics and at aged care centres, schools, disability centres and hospitals.
