Festival Patrons:

Major General the Hon. Michael Jeffery
and Mrs Marlena Jeffery

One of the great joys of autumn that we two look forward to each year is our nationally recognised Canberra International Music Festival.

Set in some of Canberra’s iconic venues and show-casing our own local talent, the Festival has grown over 23 years to attract renowned musicians from all around Australia and overseas.

For 10 wonderful days and nights, Canberrans are treated to inspirational programs mixing great classical music that is familiar to us with exciting lesser-known works.

Young Australian musicians come to learn from and perform alongside international artists. And although each year it grows in reputation, the festival retains the intimate feeling of being community based.

We’ve been pleased to have sponsored concerts over the years, and we are honoured to have been asked to become patrons of the Canberra International Music Festival.
