What's Happening

 

UPDATE FROM PETER COAD OAM - ABBA PRESIDENT

G'day everyone,

2020 has certainly become a very uncertain time for Australia and the world with the Corona Virus (Covid-19) taking great toll in not only the music world but all areas of work, business and personal life as well.

But as they say, 'We are all in this together' and so I sincerely hope that ‘together’ (socially distanced) we will all be able to safely navigate our way through this storm over the coming months.
