A message from the organisers:
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Australian Festival of Chamber Music, our team of staffers, volunteers, and most of all, our Artistic Director Kathryn Stott, and all the artists who were scheduled to perform at this year’s Festival, it is with great sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of this year’s Festival, scheduled from July 23rd to August 1st.
We are hopeful that Winterschool and the Queens Garden Concert can still proceed, but this is subject to confirmation.
We are disappointed to have to cancel for the second consecutive year, however due to the expanded Covid-related border restrictions announced today and ongoing lockdown situations in NSW and Victoria, there was no other option.
To all our ticketholders, Gold and Gold Plus subscribers, AFCM Friends, donors, supporters, sponsors, Government funding agencies who have stood by us, and in particular, the people of Townsville, whose resilience continues to inspire us - thank you for your support, your understanding, and your co-operation.
On a more positive note, we are extremely excited about the 2022 Festival and the program that incoming Artistic Director, Jack Liebeck has created. The dates for next year are 29 July to 6 August 2022. The program and a priority booking period will be announced to AFCM Friends later this year, and to the general public in February 2022. More on that later!
In the meantime, there is much work involved now in terms of processing all that needs to happen.
