Canberra International Music Festival
May 10 to May 19
Enjoy the 19th Canberra International Music Festival, held in iconic architectural spaces around Canberra as part of the official Centenary celebrations.
In music from American, British and Australian composers the Festival will celebrate Canberra's growth from the inspired designs of Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony into the dynamic organism it is today.
The festival will include the world première of Peter Sculthorpe's dramatic oratorio Great South Land, portraying Pedro Fernández de Quirós, the visionary explorer credited with giving Australia its name.
