Bangalow Music Festival weekend kicks off in style

MORE than 180 classical music lovers celebrated on Thursday night when the Bangalow Music Festival returned to the town's historic A&I Hall.

The 12th annual festival began with a prelude evening with performers giving music lovers a taste of what the weekend will hold.

Nine more performances are set down for the weekend featuring a range of classical musicians from soloists to duets to small ensembles.


Bangalow Music Festival logistics co-ordinator, Margaret Curtis said attending the festival is a great way to become immersed in classical music.

"If you've never been before it's a great introduction to the genre," Ms Curtis said.

The Bangalow Music Festival began in 2002 when chamber ensemble, the Southern Cross Soloists, decided to take advantage of the the unique acoustics provided by the 102-year-old A&I Hall.

This year's festival will include tenor Alexander Lewis, Chinese violinist Qian Zhou and pianist, Jayson Gilham.
