August 29th, 2022A Feast of Music
Melbourne Chamber Orchestra’s A Feast of Music festival is returning to Daylesford for the first time in three years, after the pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 and 2021 festivals.
The weekend festival runs from September 9-11 and brings some of Australia’s biggest chamber music names to perform in intimate performances in Daylesford.
This year’s guests include pianists Stefan Cassomenos and Timothy Young, violinists Elizabeth Sellars, Sulki Yu and Tair Khisambeev, and clarinettist David Griffiths.
The festival’s Saturday afternoon orchestral performance this year includes Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Tickets to the Four Seasons are nearly sold out and will soon be limited to package purchasers only.
The annual highlight of the festival is the Chamber Music Dining event at Lake House. For this year’s dinner, guests will be serenaded with iconic chamber works including music from Mozart and Weber’s clarinet quintets and Mendelssohn’s fiery sixth string quartet.
Hepburn and Macedon Ranges shires residents can receive 10 per cent off all festival events and packages by booking at eCasa in Vincent Street.
