Dedicated to all who seek hope and inspiration
"To celebrate our return to singing together in-person, we wanted to do something special. The result is a gift to the community and wider world in the form of this music video. Will Todd’s ‘All will be well’ beautifully captures what we have needed to hear these past two years. In Melbourne, our young people have endured some of the hardest and longest lockdowns in the world. We are so proud of their strength and resilience during this difficult time. The ACC hopes ‘All will be well’ will offer quiet encouragement to those who need it over the coming weeks and months ahead."
Daniel Brinsmead, Artistic Director.
