To whom it may concern, 

I have known Alessandro Sorbello for a number of years and have found him an empathetic, willing, passionate and talented volunteer for Hear and Say. He has worked to showcase the work of Hear and Say through his publicity, events, functions, IT and filming support on numerous occasions. Alessandro has been awarded the Hear and Say “Community Champion Award" for 2007. As his resume attests, he is  incredibly talented, artistic and above all passionate and all of these, as well as his intelligent cultural sensitivity he has brought to the celebration of Italian Culture which has culminated in Italian Week.

Alessandro Sorbello and Italian Week are fully deserving of any public honours, as he has created a focus for all that is delightful about Italian lifestyle and made it accessible to the average Australian.

Yours faithfully,

Dimity Dornan AM

Brisbane Metropolitan Bands Letter of Support Italian Week 2010

Letter of Support from Helen Hall

Dear Alessandro,

I would like to register an expression of interest in a collaboration with you for Italian Week 2011.
I believe it would be of great benefit to the wider community for the bands of Brisbane to be involved in an event that supports and promotes Italian culture and lifestyle in Brisbane and provides musicians and artists an opportunity to perform in a multicultural environment.

With the support of the Brisbane City Council, Brisbane Metropolitan bands undertake a series of community based concerts which are provided free to the people of Brisbane. A collaboration with Italian Week would be a further enhancement to the diversity of Brisbane’s musical fabric. 

Some suggestions for this collaboration in Italian Week 2011 include 
Marching brass bands as part of a street festival with roving jazz musicians
Outdoor symphonic concerts featuring opera singers
Swing bands playing music from Sinatra and popular contemporary Italian composers
Community orchestras playing classical Italian repertoire

I look forward to our future collaboration and the opportunity to enrich the musical and cultural diversity of Brisbane.
