Welcome from the Artistic Director

Glenn Christensen

Glenn ChristensenDear friends and fellow music lovers,

Welcome to the second Mackay Chamber Music Festival! I can hardly believe it’s already been nearly one year since the excitement of the inaugural festival in 2018. I’m thrilled to be back to share in another weekend of community spirit, friendship and brilliant music played by some of Australia’s finest musicians. For those that attended last year’s festival, you might recognise some familiar faces, plus we introduce some new friends into the mix. We’ve also listened to your feedback from last year, and hope this year’s festival will be even more enjoyable than last.

For those that are attending the festival for the first time, or who might even be attending their first chamber music concert, we invite you to sit back, relax, and let the music wash over you, and take you wherever you want to go.

Please have a look around the website to see our program, artists and schedule, and to secure your tickets - they go on sale on March 24th! We also have some exciting events happening outside of the festival weekend, so keep your eyes peeled for announcements.

Please come and join us for a wonderful series of concerts, masterclasses and talks, and I look forward to seeing you in July!

Thank you once again for your support - I really hope that you enjoy this weekend of wonderful music making, friends and fun.

Glenn Christensen
