    In addition to our gala concerts in the Kangaroo Valley Community Hall, we once again presented 6 very special hausmusik events.

    The hausmusik venues for 2019 were the newly-constructed and architecturally brilliant house on Mt Scanzi Road, an elegant home on Wattamolla Road, and Serenata on Keoghs Road. 

    And if that isn’t enough, on Sunday 5th May from midday we offered a

    Royal Navy Band

    in which the Royal Australian Navy Band under the direction of Lieutenant Brian O’Kane entertained our Festival crowd for a family picnic at Osborne Park. This was a free event.

    Our final Sunday concert was a drama performance, in which we presented Nick Enright’s droll, epic and heart-warming poem of love, music-making and community, The Maitland and Morpeth String Quartet, narrated by Jillian O’Dowd and illustrated by the Acacia String Quartet, and the RAN Band. The production was directed by Festival Director, Robert Constable.
