Experience the music
28 April - 8 may 2016
A vibrant fusion of expertly curated music, iconic performances both daring and intimate, exceptional music-making mixed with culinary surprises – that’s the Canberra International Music Festival: 28 April to 8 May 2016, an annual treat for Australia’s culture vultures.
The 2016 Festival captures the sounds and stories of the Mediterranean, from the mouths of ancient bards or youthful angels. For eleven exhilarating days, musicians from around the world will gather in Canberra to make music and create a feast for the eyes and ears. This year’s program features Monteverdi, Bach, Mozart, Boccherini, Vivaldi, Scarlatti, Ravel, Granados and much more, including flamenco, medieval music and work by Gerard Brophy, the Festival’s 2016 Composer-in-Residence. The Festival also bursts with rhythms from Latin America, from tango and samba to Mexican percussion.
