Australian Festival of Chamber Music

Townsville, 26 July to 4 August 2019

Under the artistic direction of Kathryn Stott, the Australian Festival of Chamber Music presents more than 30 musicians from around the world 

There are 25 concerts and five special events, including the hugely popular morning conversations, twilight concerts, full-length evening concerts, as well as a magical concert on the beach of Orpheus Island and one on Magnetic Island. Masterclasses also form part of the program.

Connor D’Netto (b. 1994), is the festival’s composer in residence.
Artists in residence are the Goldner String Quartet, regarded as Australia’s pre-eminent string quartet but also as an ensemble of international significance, 

In the aftermath of the February floods, this seems like the ideal time for chamber music lovers to support the festival and assist in the recovery of the town.

A variety of ticket options is available including holiday packages. The detailed program can be found at
