Hawaiian staff and tenants of their 235 St. George’s Terrace building enjoyed a recharging lunch break last week as Perth Symphony Orchestra performed a free relaxation and meditation session. C.A.L.M stands for Come And Listen to Music, and is a call for busy people to stop and clear their minds.
A 13 piece PSO string ensemble with percussionist performed some of the world’s most beautiful and relaxing music ever written including Bach’s Air on a G String, Satie’s Gymnopedie, Grieg’s Holberg Suite and Handel’s Largo.
Hawaiian CEO Russell Gibbs said the unique live-music experience was brought in to give staff the opportunity to switch off and enjoy a moment of mindfulness during workhours.
“We are all busy, and it can be a challenge to find time to relax and recharge, which can lead to stress in the workplace.”
“The physical and mental wellbeing of our staff is our upmost priority, so we invited our partner Perth Symphony Orchestra to come in and give us all a moment to simply unwind,” Mr Gibbs said.
PSO is proud to have launched this initiative with Orchestra (PSO on the Streets) Partner Hawaiian, and is hoping to roll out more of these concerts for both private and public concerts. If you are interested in hosting a C.A.L.M. concert, please contact Belinda today.
“This was absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for arranging such a wonderful session”
“…we walked out feeling so refreshed! What a terrific event.. it was absolutely terrific and hope more organisations follow in Hawaiian’s footsteps”
“I particularly loved the didgeridoo music combination – gave me goosebumps!”
“I’ve come back to my desk now feeling lighter and ready to face the afternoon.”
