New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Enjoy a range of musical performances in unusual locations
The 2017 Canberra International Music Festival will be held between 27th April and 7th May, at various locations across the city. There will be over 20 musical performances of contemporary and world music, in venues handpicked for their stunning acoustic qualities. Venues include the Fitters Workshop in Kingston, the Ainslie Arts Centre, the National Library of Australia and the Chinese Embassy. The event will include the Chinese Oriental Orchestra, Canadian Brass, Simon Bolívar String Quartet (above) and The Lions Roar from Singapore.
There will also be a small number of free concerts including Taking Flight, a performance held at the acoustic Canberra Airport terminal. See the 2017 Canberra International Music Festival website for the calendar of events.
