G’Day Australia Week
G’Day Australia Week – Theater Review
An onstage compilation of some of Australia’s finest talent held at the world renowned Carnegie Hall. Performers included Grammy award winning Australian icon Olivia Newton-John, Simon Burke (Host), Lior, recent 2 time ARIA winner Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu and many others.
“It only happens once a year but I’m telling you about it for a bunch of reasons. For one, it was fun to be there. Second, the Australian’s were so excited to be there and perform on the inauguration day of President Obama. They performed was something called a “Portrait of Lincoln” whom, as you know, Obama has used as his role model throughout the election. It was really remarkable to see a foreign government be that enthusiastic about our new President. The performances brought the house down.”
