Fans in concert

A free concert featuring some of Australia’s top artists, with and without disability, will be held live in Sydney to mark International Day of People with Disability.

An event that promises to be a beacon of unity, acceptance and diversity, Elevate the Stage will be a spectacular showcase of talent on the international day, which is a United Nations initiative observed since 1992.

Performers at the concert, to be held at ICC in Sydney from 4-6 pm on Sunday, December 3, include:

  • Paulini Curuenavuli

  • Soprano Amelia Farrugia, performing with opera singing sensation Tim McCallum

  • Peter Cousens, performing with StarAbility 2023 winner Lauren Weber

  • Singer Mick on Wheels

  • Rock guitarist Rex Goh of Air Supply, Eurogliders and other popular bands

  • Instrumentalists and singers, Lara Nakhle and Connor Wink

  • Jazz vocalist Emma Pask

  • Comedians Tahir Bilgiç and Jamal Abdul and entertainer and athlete Paul Nunnari

To be hosted by three-time Paralympic gold medalist and two-time Commonwealth Games gold medalist Kurt Fearnley and Nas Campanella, other acts will include: Maestro John Foreman , DJ Matt Medcalfe, the StarAbility Dancers, the Talent Development Project, the NSW Schools Singing Choir, wheelchair ballroom dancers and many more.

Event ambassador and actress Paula Duncan says Elevate the Stage is not about dwelling on the challenges of living with disability; it’s about breaking down barriers for people with disability and encouraging more inclusive attitudes and behaviours among all Australians.

“Elevate the Stage is a fantastic opportunity for performers with disability to showcase their talents along with fellow professionals," she said.

"It’s a chance for all of us to celebrate achievement and hard work through performance and importantly, in front of new audiences.”

WHERE: Grand Ballroom, ICC Sydney – 14 Darling Drive, Sydney NSW 2000

WHEN: Sunday, December 3, 2023, 4.00pm – 6.30pm (AEDT). Doors open from 3.00pm
