Sunshine Coast Arts Foundation is delighted to support the Sunshine Coast Chamber Music Festival as an inaugural project partner.
The new Festival will take its place alongside Horizon Festival, Caloundra Music Festival and other local music programs offered each year in our region.
Festival Chairman Ralph Devlin AM QC said the Festival will be held across the weekend of Friday 18 to Sunday 20 June 2021 and promises an unprecedented, memorable celebration of classical music for music lovers of all ages.
Sunshine-Coast based cellist and producer Louise King is the Artistic Director of the Festival and has curated a bold and ambitious program of live performances with dynamic Australian festival artists. Performances will feature a diverse range of music hosted in spaces, places, venues and intimate hinterland halls across the beautiful Sunshine Coast region.
“We have created a festival for our region that celebrates the regeneration in the arts and delivers hope for the cultural future of our community,” Ms King said.
One of the Festival’s signature events and musical highlights will be the Chamber Music Gala ‘Songs of Sky, Bush and Moon’. This concert will feature headline festival artists, including international soloist and classical guitarist Karin Schaupp, First Nations violinist and song-man Eric Avery, a Ngiyampaa, Yuin, Bandjalang and Gumbangirr artist and Opera Queensland soprano, Sofia Troncoso.
The concert will also present artists from Australian World Orchestra, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Symphony Orchestra and Brisbane Music Festival. The Events Centre Caloundra will host the Gala event on Saturday 19 June at 7.30pm.
