Exciting Changes at Present AustraliaPresent Australia is changing its name to KIconcerts. Michael Clohesy and Oliver Scofield continue to direct and own the company as they do KIconcerts. KI is a leading company solely specializing in performance tours in Europe, the U.S., Asia, Africa, and Central & South America through its offices and specialist partners around the world. The streamlining of our operations through this integration brings you many benefits as seen on the KIconcerts website - we can now serve the international performance needs of our Australian bands, choirs and orchestras in an even more seamless manner. Larina Hansen, our Groups Manager in Sydney, looks forward to discussing your touring needs.
