Festival Artist

Rachel John is the founder and musical director of the local Classic Sounds Orchestra Association that recently won the 2017 Australia Day award for Active Citizenship.

Rachel grew up in Armadale and for the past two decades has been an active performer, educator, workshop facilitator and arts administrator in the local music industry.

She is a very passionate advocate for strengthening community spirit through the creative activities, and believes the Arts have no age, gender or cultural boundaries.

Rachel is fascinated by the positive impact music, dance and art has on communities. She has studied cultures from around the world and collective ideas across centuries of artistic development.

"Artistic and creative endeavours are what fill our souls with colour and a form of expression that is universally spoken. It is a joy to be part of a community so rich in cultural diversity and inspirational peers, and I am proud to be an ambassador for the growth of artistic values here in Armadale."
