Congratulations to Denise Officer and Bill Searle who were awarded the inaugural MusicNT Hall of Fame Award at the 2016 NT Song of the Year Awards.
To celebrate 20 years of MusicNT the new Hall of Fame Award was announced.
Denise and Bill were recognised for their contributions in starting MusicNT back in 1996.
MIDI (Music Industry Development Incorporated) was founded in 1996 by a group of passionate advocates for local music. Initially formed to rally for a venue to replace the recently closed Darwin Music Development Centre (AKA the The Old Workers Club) it soon broadened to become a support base for musicians from across Darwin and soon, the Territory.
In 1996 MIDI securing operational funding from ArtsNT and changed the organisation name to MusicNT.
Since then MusicNT has continued to grow through the creation of leading programs and initiatives that have brought to the fore NT music and developed positive platforms for the showcasing of the talent from across the Territory.
MusicNT would like to recognise all of those hard working music lovers who made such a huge change to the NT music community.
