A fascinating man with an amazing gift, David Helfgott’s life has taken some of the most improbable turns imaginable, including having his extraordinary life inspire the Oscar winning film Shine.
The benefits of music in education are well documented, but many school music departments need extra financial support, so, despite his already hectic 2010 schedule (including international tours to Germany, Austria, Turkey and Finland) David Helfgott has kindly agreed to do a series of fundraising concerts.
All revenue from ticket sales will be donated to the participating QLD school, who will be hosting the concert, to help them raise enough money to buy a brand new grand piano.
"Petrof are very pleased to be involved in such a worthwhile cause" said Michelle Conway from Petrof Australasia "We are asking members of the community to help support these events, by either

By buying a ticket or making a donation, your assistance will have a lasting effect - a professional grand piano can service the schools needs for 50 years or more."
