Hush Competition - Terms and Conditions

The album is titled, “The Gathering of Kindness” and features the amazing gentle jazz music of Tony Gould and Peter Petrucci.   With tracks titles including, “All things good”, “Anthem”, “Calm”, “Essence” and “Truth”, this album evokes a feeling of relaxation and calm.

The Hush Foundation was established in 2000 by highly awarded and renowned physician, Dr. Catherine Crock AM, in response to her work with children undergoing painful medical procedures at The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, Australia. Catherine aimed to reduce the pain, stress and anxiety experienced by these patients and their families collaborating with renowned Australian composers and musicians to develop specially composed music to transform the hospital environment.    

Since this time, eighteen albums of beautifully curated music have been released and the work of the Hush Foundation has expanded to encompass the culture of the health system itself.  The Hush Foundation now includes Hush Health Plays and the Gathering of Kindness among its suite of initiatives that transform the culture of health care through the Arts.  Seewww.hush.org.au for more
