On World Suicide Prevention Day, Sydney’s finest classical musicians are coming together for a glorious night of music making to raise money for suicide prevention. Suicide is the biggest cause of death for people aged 15-45 and accounts for twice the number of deaths as road accidents. Deaths by suicide have reached a ten year peak; this equates to almost 7 deaths by suicide every day in Australia, and it is estimated that for every completed suicide as many as 30 people attempt.

Suicide knows no boundaries; its effects spread through the whole community. All profits from this event will go to Suicide Prevention Australia and Lifeline Australia to be spent on much needed research and education programs.
