A memorial concert honouring the spirit and sacrifice of the ANZACs during World War I. It honours the ultimate sacrifice of 18-year-old Lance Corporal Charles Frederic Giles Chopin SN7134 and remembers him on the 100th anniversary of his death. He represents some 60,000 ANZACs who died. It honours those abroad and back home through the powerful music of Fryderyk Chopin and how it was used to heal, to rest, to grieve, and to provide solace and hope. And it is an opportunity to reflect on the personal sacrifices and contributions of our soldiers in the Great War and the impacts it has had on our communities and our families over the generations to today, and to observe the centenary of its ending.
