V t The work "Earth Poem/Sky Poem" for orchestra, aboriginal dancers and electronic music was performed in the Darwin High School Tank on December 4th and featured the Darwin Symphony Orchestra, the Elcho Island Dancers and the Warringa Band of Millingimbi. Government has also approved a major increase in operational funding for 1994/95 for the Darwin Symphony Orchestra to enable them to continue their excellent work. Funds have also been allocated to enable the Orchestra to tour to Katherine, Tennant Creek, Alice Springs and Glen Helen in October this year. Those who enjoyed the "Sounds Italian" concert at the Casino two week ago, featuring the Orchestra, the Darwin Chorale and soloist Kathy Banks, will know that it is certainly money well spent. Contemporary music is also supported. November 27th was Australian National Music Day, and a grant of $3 000 was provided to support the Darwin branch of AUSMUSIC to stage a contemporary music concert on that day, giving the opportunity for many groups of musicians to perform their music in public. 5
