Experience the music adventure

28 April - 7 may 2017

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 which will be back in 2017, an annual treat for Australia’s culture vultures. We'd love to have you on our mailing list.

The 2016 Festival captured 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 gathered in Canberra to make music and create a feast for the eyes and ears. The 2016 program featured 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 was full of rhythms from Latin America, from tango and samba to Mexican percussion.
