Welcome to 2021! We hope everyone had a lovely festive season.
We are almost ready to release the updated program for our postponed 30th Anniversary Festival. It will include details of all of the Artists joining us in Townsville in July, along with information on how we plan to deliver a COVID Safe Festival this year. The updated booking brochure is 100% digital so will be emailed to you, plus be available on our website to read or download.
AFCM Friends will receive the booking brochure digitally on 3 February and will enjoy a priority booking period for purchasing tickets from 10 to 24 February. General tickets go on sale to the public on 2 March 2021.
If you’re not an AFCM Friend but purchased tickets last year and had them transferred, donated or refunded you will also receive early access to the new program and be able to re-purchase or exchange during the priority booking period.
The Advanced Winterschool is held in Townsville during the Festival, and is an unforgettable experience for emerging musicians. Students will gain access to leading artists for lessons, masterclasses, mentoring and concerts. Advanced/tertiary level ensembles are invited to apply. A warm welcome in sunny seaside Townsville is assured, as are first-rate concert experiences and coaching at an expert level. Affordable, educational and potentially life changing.
Chris Howlett and Howard Penny are delighted to announce the 2021 Bendigo Chamber Music Festival. Following on from the sold-out inaugural 2020 festival they are thrilled to present 16 of Australia's leading artists for 15 concerts between February 3rd and 7th 2021. Festival passes and single tickets available for all concerts via Bendigo Chamber Music Festival's website plus digital tickets are also available via Melbourne Digital Concert Hall.
AFCM 2020 Friends have been automatically transferred to 2021 and will be able to purchase Gold and Gold Plus subscriptions, as well as 5 and 10 concert passes and single concert tickets from February 10. General public release isn’t until 2 March so Friends get a jump on everyone else and guaranteed some of the best seats in the house!
We are very excited to shortly unveil Kathryn Stott's amended program Carnival. Unfortunately due to budgetary restrictions we are unable to re-print the full booking brochure and instead will make it available digitally. All of the same information including the program, artist bios, the booking form and details about our COVID19 safe Festival will be available to view online or download from our website. We are printing a smaller version that can be requested for mailing. Thank you for your understanding.
