Welcome to the inaugural Coffs Harbour Festival of Chamber Music, brought to you by the Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium.
The Coffs Harbour Festival of Chamber Music brings together Australia’s leading professional and student musicians on stage in Coffs Harbour for a 3-day celebration of music, performing arts, culture, community, and collaboration.
The Festival is the first of its kind at the Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium and brings an exciting program of classical and contemporary chamber music performances, workshops and masterclasses to the greater Coffs Coast community.
A vision of bringing world class performances and experiences to audiences and students, the festival celebrates collaboration between leading professionals and local student musicians, featuring a multi-tiered learning structure built to inspire and lead the next generation of regional musicians.
Opening the festival on Friday 8 April, the Australian String Quartet present a world premiere composition by Manduway Dutton (Gumbaynaggirr nation), Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky for their first ever concert in Coffs Harbour.
Saturday 9 April sees Academy students feature in the spotlight with open rehearsals and collaborative concerts alongside festival musicians and the Australian String Quartet. After a relaxing afternoon, the Saturday evening concert offers a program that features another world premiere, and two diamonds of the chamber music repertoire by Schubert.
Sunday 10 April brings the festival to a close with the final concert beginning at 3pm. The program takes listeners on a journey through dramatically different landscapes, encapsulating the weekend and celebrating the return of live music and arts and culture on the Coffs Coast.
