The Magic Island is a short orchestral work inspired by Dr Catherine Crock and her team at The Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne. It was written especially for the Hush Music Foundation's CD of the same title in a project designed to provide a positive environment for children recovering in hospital. The Magic Island imagines a place beyond the walls of a hospital ward - an Island of hope, playfulness and optimism.
