Cinnamon Watson Publicity 2 mins read

The Sunshine Coast Chamber Music Festival (SCCMF) is back in 2024 and will run across three fabulous days in June - 6th to 9th - presenting a wonderful opportunity for music lovers from around the country to immerse themselves in the innovative program.


The 2024 Festival is bursting with bespoke events featuring internationally celebrated classical music artists, alongside First Nations, jazz and world musicians, all coming together to share their passion in some of the most stunning natural locations and intimate venues across the Sunshine Coast.


Co-directors of SCCMF 2024, Lynne Bradley and James Lees, are keen through their programming to make classical music more accessible, thereby introducing new audiences to chamber music. 


“Since its inception five years ago, the festival has simultaneously looked to the origins of chamber music (in the intimate and cosy homes of the artists with no conductor), and forward to what chamber music is becoming in the 21st century. Long thought of as conversation between instruments, in 2024 SCCMF will extend that conversation to include the audience, celebrating the art of storytelling as artists break with tradition to weave words and music together in an irresistible series of concerts filled with wonder, heart and humour,” said the co-directors.


This year’s program features several exciting Queensland and Sunshine Coast premieres with some of the biggest names in classical music in Australia, including Elena Kats-Chernin, Tamara-Anna Cislowska, Simon Tedeschi, Alex Raineri, and the Orava Quartet. These include:


  • With love, Amadeus, a thrilling collaboration between two of Australia's leading artists from theatre and classical music, John Bell and Simon Tedeschi, which will include readings from letters written by Mozart and sharing key moments in his life.


  • an opportunity to experience an immersive sound, music, and nature experience with Grammy Award-nominated artist Tenzin Choegyal. Meditate // Anytime, Anywhere will weave together sounds from the classical and chamber music worlds with world-music textures, as the audience is lead on a journey around the Maroochy Botanical Gardens.


  • ARIA award-winning pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska, alongside internationally renowned composer Elena Kats-Chernin, in 4 Hands, 1 Piano, featuring music inspired by family and fantasy, from Paris to the Silk Road.
