The 2019 Festival was themed Origins and it certainly delivered to that theme by taking us to the origins of many composers and musicians, from Italy to Russia, France, China and more. There were so many magical moments – too many to capture here, but we will add more photos to our Facebook page in the coming days, so please connect with us there if you haven’t already.
