Originally developed by Dr Catherine Crock to reduce stress and anxiety felt by both patients and their families in hospitals, the Hush music collection transforms the environment through the use of carefully curated music from some of Australia’s foremost musicians and talents, and is now played in hospitals, homes and shared spaces across the globe.
For the past decade, The Hush Foundation has been the largest commissioner of independent music in Australia, winning awards and accolades for their contribution to the music industry.
Historically, the Hush collection has focused on a classical music offering with Australia's most well known and loved composers, conductors and orchestras donating their time and talent to produce the albums.
Hush 19 Gathering of Kindness is our latest triumph. Piano legend Tony Gould AM is joined by renowned guitarist Peter Petrucci for this brand new release from the Hush Collection. This beautiful album has been named after the healthcare events Hush has hosted since 2016, and explores in music the transformative impact of kindness.
