Digital Concert Hall goes national

Melbourne Digital Concert Hall gains a new name and a new national focus.

Having raised over $1.6 million for classically-trained musicians since the start of COVID through an ongoing series of live-streamed concerts and recitals, Melbourne Digital Concert Hall has announced a new name and a new national focus as it moves towards 2022.

Now known as the Australian Digital Concert Hall (ADCH), the duo behind the initiative, Chris Howlett and Adele Schonhardt, intend to present an ambitious program in 2022, working with ensembles and orchestras across the country.
