girl piano truck
girl piano truck is the inspired concept of classical pianist and composer, Ambre Hammond.
Ambre’s vision is to put a piano in the back of a truck and travel to disadvantaged communities in remote parts of the world, giving free concerts in schools and orphanages. The mission is to share music with the underprivileged to uplift and inspire.
Since 2013, Ambre has taken the project to India, Thailand, East Timor, Belarus and Tanzania.
Some highlights include touring the Philippines in 2015 (Manila, Cebu, Tacloban and Bohol) presenting 20 concerts in 12 days throughout various orphanages, community centres, a home for the abandoned and elderly people of Manila including a special concert at Payatas - the worlds largest inhabited landfill, home to 60,000 people.
In Belarus, Ambre gave a concert at a Mental Asylum in Kul, in a remote forest outside of Minsk.
girl piano truck will head to Outback Australia in 2019 and will be documented to create a film of this unique project.
Ambre received a nomination for Australian of the Year 2016
