Welcome to the 2019 Mackay Chamber Music Festival! In this concert we introduce each of our Festival Artists, in some of the greatest chamber music by three of the greatest German composers - Beethoven, Schumann and Brahms. As well as our stunning string and piano players, we’re excited in 2019 to bring a new sound to the festival - the velvety tones of the clarinet, performed by Justin Beere, Associate Principal Clarinet of Orchestra Victoria. Please join us for this opening night celebration of the MCMF - be moved by exquisite music, and stay on afterwards to mingle with the musicians over some complimentary refreshments and snacks.
