Australian Festival of Chamber Music: Families’ Concert – Stan and Mabel
31 July @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 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.

Paul Rissmann is one of the world’s great composers of children’s music and his fantastic setting of such a brilliant adventure story will have children mesmerised. We can’t wait to hear the story of Stan and Mabel. Dressing up as dogs and cats is optional!
