The Bellingen Youth Orchestra are so proud to name David Helfgott as our patron. We were absolutley delighted to feature in Scott Hicks recent 2023 documentary ‘The Musical Mind  – a portrait in process’.

‘A glimpse into the private worlds and elite musical processes of four superstar musicians, Daniel Johns, David Helfgott, Ben Folds and Simon Tedeschi, brought together through their connection with the blockbuster movie Shine and its director Scott Hicks. A celebration of the individuality of the creative brain, THE MUSICAL MIND explores the remarkable ability of four extraordinary musicians to channel their unique instincts and individual neurodiversity into sublime musical creations, unlocking profound emotion through the borderless language of music.’
