We are delighted to announce our program for the 9th Bellingen Fine Music Festival, which continues its tradition of presenting fine music from differing traditions, performed by established and emerging, international and local performers.

The six main concerts include performances from renowned artists Karin Schaupp (through Musica Viva) and the Acacia Quartet – both of whom will also be performing with the fine Bellingen Youth Orchestra; the thrilling Taikoz Quartet; one of Australia’s most exciting young chamber ensembles Arcadia Winds, brilliant saxophonist Sandy Evans and her trio and the vibrant and fun Blush Opera.

Thanks to Bellingen’s Camp Creative and the much welcomed ongoing support of the Acacia Quartet, our acclaimed Music-by-Youth Project continues with concert performances by the Bellingen Youth Orchestra and The Academy from Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium  Orchestra.

The Festival Fringe continues to grow and bring new venues and experiences to the Festival. Akabella, Sohum and 11th Hour are among the fringe events.

The weekend starts with school string workshops with the Acacia Quartet on Thursday 27th.  Sept. The main concert program runs from Friday evening Sept 28th until Sunday afternoon Sept 30th. Most events are in the Bellingen Memorial Hall, St Andrews Hall or nearby.
