Australian Festival of Chamber Music: Closing Night – Celebration!
31 July @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm AEST
COVID hit AFCM hard in 2020, so for this 30th anniversary year Artistic Director Kathryn Stott plans to make up for it with a carnival-themed program of 133 works by 112 composers, four world premieres and five Australian premieres. Keeping it local, more than 40 Australian musicians will be heading north, as well as the Goldner String Quartet in their 25th anniversary year and three local groups including Dancenorth. Returning artists include former AD, Piers Lane and didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton, while those making their AFCM debut include baritone David Greco and 13-year-old violin prodigy Christian Li.

Lovers of West Side Story won’t be disappointed and klaxons might even come in to play during the Hornpipe. Come and join the party – it won’t be the same without you!
