The award is a tribute to the Sonata Singers whose members are senior citizens of Filipino descent, promoting the Philippine cultural heritage through their music whilst strengthening their dedication to unify all cultures in our linguistically diverse community.  SONATA is a resident artist at the Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre, and through this collaboration, has performed at the Sydney Opera House, the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts and many other community events/festivals.

The Sydney Sonata Singers will continue to showcase their talent and artistry through another cultural concert in June 2023 in celebration of its 16th year anniversary.
