PAUL KEATING LIVE ON STAGE!

6:15PM ARRIVAL FOR 6:45PM SHARP!

THE EULOGY unravels some of the truths and myths behind the life and career of one of Australia’s most brilliant, prolific and least understood concert pianists, Geoffrey Tozer. As an 8-year-old child prodigy the world was Geoffrey Tozer’s oyster, and he astonished audiences around the world with his remarkable talent. As an adult Geoffrey Tozer continued to perform in Australia and internationally in a career that promised and delivered so much.

At his memorial service in 2009, Tozer’s friend and former Prime Minister, Paul Keating delivered a searing eulogy, painting a haunting picture of a passionate genius shunned by the Australian musical establishment. Intrigued by Keating’s controversial eulogy and spurred to explore Tozer’s career, esteemed conductor and music educator Richard Gill goes on a journey with members of Tozer’s family, inner circle and musical colleagues to discover the man behind Keating’s eulogy. The epic tale and musical legacy of one of the greatest pianists Australia never really knew is finally revealed.

Following the film there will be a conversation with Paul Keating to discuss Tozer’s musical legacy. This one-off event is exclusive to the Hayden Orpheum. In honour of esteemed music educator and conductor the late Richard Gill AO, 10% of ticket sales from this event will be donated to the Richard Gill National Music Academy (RGNMA).
The RGNMA is a new independent music primary school scheduled to open in Muswellbrook in 2021. Through the RGNMA, children will have access to the unique social, emotional and intellectual benefits achieved through music and physical activity as core components in a ground-breaking education program.
