BOOK THESE DATES FOR THE 2017 FESTIVAL:
FRIDAY 28 JULY – SUNDAY 30 JULY
After another radiant week of music-making at the 2016 festival, we are now at work on plans for next year’s 10th anniversary festival: 28–30 July 2017. We hope to see you there.
We reached some milestones this year: for the first time, most concerts were sold out well before the concert weekend, and ABC Classic FM recorded and broadcast 5 of the 6 concerts.
Most importantly to me, we have retained loyal audience members since the inception of the festival, and musicians are eager to come back and perform again each year.
In 2016, we welcomed newcomers Diana Doherty, Tim Munro and Bernadette Harvey, who delighted the audience with their wonderful presence and musical exuberance. As usual, the concerts were bathed in warm winter sunshine. The glistening of the ocean through the trees at the Point Lookout Hall was a sight to behold (some of the artists even managed a dip between concerts!).
I am so grateful for the unwavering support of the patrons, volunteers, sponsors and donors who help keep our festival growing. The reputation of this event is now not only nation-wide but international, and I believe it’s an incredibly important addition to the island’s cultural life and an effective investment in the community’s future. The main challenge we now face is how to cater for our still-growing audience – a rare and wonderful problem to have!
