The 2017 Bellingen Music Festival brings sublime classical music and musicians with international standing to the beautiful Bellinger Valley and inspires and supports young musicians through its highly regarded Music-By-Youth initiative.

We are excited to announce that the Festival program includes Elena Kats-Chernin and Tamara-Anna Cislowska as a piano duo playing “Butterflying”, their 2015 ARIA Winner for Best Classical Album.

Sally Whitwell  is the commissioned composer for the Music-By-Youth Project. Her work will be premiered by the Bellingen Youth Orchestra at the opening Youth and Exuberance Concert.
