About ame

Australian Music Events Pty Ltd was founded in 1995 by directors Graeme Wall and Margot Cory-Wall, whose love of music has shaped their own lives and inspired others to follow their dreams. As former professional opera singers in Australia and overseas, music educators and concert promoters, they bring many years of experience and expertise to their business of presenting “beautiful music in beautiful places.”

Australian Music Events was conceived to achieve the following aims:

  • To provide talented young musicians and singers with opportunities to perform with Australian and international conductors and soloists in a professional environment
  • To provide choral enthusiasts with stimulating and challenging opportunities to extend their vocal expertise and choral experiences
  • To introduce new audiences to popular musical performances in beautiful and unusual places
  • To hold various workshops for choral participants

The company is responsible for organising, promoting and staging several outdoor classical music concerts in Victoria that attract between 3,000 to 5,000 people to each concert. They are:

  • Opera in the Alps (Beechworth)
  • Opera in the Market (Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne)
