About

The Sound Doctor Presents 

The Sound Doctor, initiated by Dr David Corbet, is a group of Surfcoast music lovers passionate about bringing established artists to perform in an intimate venue in Anglesea, Victoria.

The Sound Doctor Presents Inc. is the not-for-profit association that manages the events with the underlying purpose of promoting and encouraging engagement with the community, and connection with people, through music and the arts.

We produce high quality musical performances , contribute to a healthy community through music and the arts, and support young and local artists in connecting with more established musicians through performances and workshops.

Where

According to Wikipedia, Anglesea is on the Great Ocean Road in the SurfCoast region of Victoria, Australia and was once known as Swampy Creek. It is situated on the custodial land of the Wathaurong (Wadawurrung) people and was traditionally known as Kuarka-Dorla, which means fishing place for mullet. The name was changed to Anglesea River in 1884 when the township was established and it was renamed Anglesea in 1950. The Venue we use is the Anglesea Memorial Hall, just off the Great Ocean Road.

Acknowledgement

We would like to recognise the traditional custodians of the land on which we gather to work and play, the Wathaurong people, and continue to pay our respects to ancestors and Elders, past and present. We remain committed to honouring Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, waters and seas and their rich contribution to society, and look to learn, share and walk together in all aspects of our lives.

We would like to acknowledge the support of all our volunteers who enable the events to run and the project to continue! And also the following organisations whose support enables us to continue bringing artists to our area.
