Craven Creek Music Festival 22-23 Sep 2018

Craven Creek Music Festival: 22-23 Sep 2018

Featuring Mendelssohn’s magnificent Octet in E Flat Major

The sounds of Haydn, Bach, Koehne, Strauss, Mendelssohn & others meet the sounds of cows and cockatoos at this unique classical music event. These concerts bring talented young musicians to Gloucester to perform in the iconic Australian setting of an old wool shed on a scenic rural property.

Many of the players are award-winners and current members of elite orchestras across Australia and New Zealand. This unique music experience is uplifting and serene, under a rustic iron roof amongst the gums.

Timo-Veikko ‘Tipi’ Valve

Lachlan O’Donnell
Heather Lindsay
