There is a collaborative network of professional artists who work alongside founder/cellist Tara Franks to underpin the artistic spirit of SoundsCreative Projects, collaborating on projects as workshop leaders, performers at our curated concerts, and co-creators of the commissioned projects. Each connected artist brings their individual expertise to help create unique musical experiences.
Meet the musicians who lead some of the Neighbourhood Projects and often form part of the commissioned projects team.
