The AFCM is a gem - a place where an enthusiastic, committed and friendly audience gather to hear music making at the highest level. The sense of community, both on and off the stage - even behind it - is unique. Rainer Hersch, 2015 Artist, UK
Superbly organised, wonderfully warm atmosphere everywhere around the festival, helpers and volunteers invaluable and full of committed and passionate musicians. A compelling and unforgettable experience! James Crabb, 2015 Artist, Scotland
AFCM was a whirlwind, tour de force, virtuosic journey, musical exchange, chamber music immersion, balmy concert paradise. Eugene Ughetti, 2015 Artist, AUS
