What would Peggy do?
"MKH discusses strategic outcomes and the cost benefit analysis of being a member of the Australian music industry based in Australia for tax purposes, with colourful powerpoint pie-graphs and breathtaking audience demographics. He will interrogate the notion of ongoing triennial funding moving forward, and offer instead the metaphor of food as an incentive for art-music praxis amongst ‘working’ families. Due to the shocking dialectic nature of this talk it is unfortunately closed to unaccompanied miners (sic)."
Michael Kieran Harvey was born in Sydney and studied piano with Alan Jenkins, Gordon Watson, and at the Liszt Academy, Budapest, under Sándor Falvai. His career has been notable for its diversity and wide repertoire.
