Amazing news - The Great Walk Foundation is donating a brand new trailer for Sensory Concerts, currently being made in Denmark! This means we can now travel wider to bring you more concerts. We can't wait till it arrives late this year! THANK YOU The Great Walk Foundation!!
Our charity group Your Music Inc. has been successful in winning the Good2Give/Sydney Water Community Grant and the 2018 Blue Mountains Council Community Assistance Program to present Sensory Concerts in the Blue Mountains region next year.
NEPEAN DISABILITY EXPO
Sensory Concerts represented Your Music Inc. at the Nepean Disability Expo last month. We are grateful to The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust (Grace is a Churchill Fellow) for sponsoring the promotional materials such as flyers, banners, t-shirts!
MELBOURNE - TUMUT
This year saw us travelling to Tumut, NSW and Melbourne, VIC to present our first regional and interstate Sensory Concerts! We've had a wonderful time presenting there and received overwhelming feedback from the audiences. The Tumut Concert was sponsored by The Blakeney Millar Foundation.

2018 AUSMUMPRENEUR AWARD
Our Creative Director Grace Kim was selected as a National Finalist at this year's AusMumpreneur Award in 2 categories: Making a Difference (NFP) and Big Idea Award. It was a wonderful occasion to be recognised for her tireless work in bringing Sensory Concerts to the wider community.
NEW BOOK - NOAH'S STORY
"Two years ago, in the middle of the night, I wrote this story in desperation to come to terms with my son's diagnosis and try to help Noah, his school teachers and fellow classmates to understand him. I couldn’t find any books that resonated with us personally, so I decided to write my own. It was also a great processing tool for Noah to be able to express in pictures. He is the inspiration for Sensory Concerts. I had no idea that this would one day be published. I hope you too will find your story"
Written by Grace Kim, edited and illustrated by Noah Hylkema.

We would like to thank all the sponsors, volunteers and friends who are donating their time and resources in making Sensory Concerts such a valuable contribution to our communities. We hope to greet all of you at our next Sensory Concert!
