Our 25th Anniversary Festival was a great success! Thank you Townsville, and of course our incredible artists, voluteers, staff and audience. What a great time was had!

One year and Two Year Memberships for 2016 and 2017 open in November. 

Magic moments aplenty…… William Barton finishing up the Concert Crawl, sitting next to Gai Copeman as she created her amazing images of the musicians during Concert Conservations, the open air concert in a packed Queen’s Gardens, visiting the Umbrella Studio late one afternoon where attendees mingled informally with artists and the indefatigable Piers.  And, of course, TOWNSVILLE itself. Belinda Kendall-white, 2015 Festival attendee, TAS.

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
