Acacia Quartet is incredibly grateful to one of our wonderful patrons for the kind bid (at our fundraiser 2015) to give a concert for cancer patients at the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse! This is an independent cancer treatment and research hospital for public and private patients, located alongside Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and the University of Sydney in Camperdown, NSW.
What a special gift! We look forward to organising this with you.
