Acclaimed artists, musicians, and Indigenous performers will converge on Darwin for the Overture to Peace spectacular concert event at twilight on Anzac Day Eve at TIO Stadium from 7.30 pm to 9 pm.

Overture to Peace will take the audience on a journey – it will honour the men and women who have fought for our precious democracy, reflect on the enormity of the sacrifices made in order to ensure the freedoms, and shine a light on the Territory’s unique wartime story.

Directed by Australian musician and television personality, John Foreman OAM, the event will feature performances by Human Nature, Dami Im and Marina Prior as well as much-loved local artists including Darwin Symphony Orchestra, Darwin Chorale, members of the Australian Army Band Darwin, NT Dance Company, and members of the well-known and cherished Saltwater Band featuring Manuel Dhurrkay – all at TIO Stadium at Marrara in what promises to be a unique and emotive ceremonial event.

Join us to commemorate our unique wartime history.
