The AFCM International Masterclasses are held in Townsville-Gurambilbarra during the Australian Festival of Chamber Music, and is an unforgettable experience for emerging musicians. Young and emerging musicians gain access to some of the world's best international and Australian artists for lessons, masterclasses, mentoring and concerts. Advanced/tertiary level ensembles and individuals are invited to apply. A warm welcome in sunny seaside Townsville-Gurambilbarra is assured, as are first-rate concert experiences and coaching at an expert level. Affordable, educational and life-changing.

Since 1992 the AFCM International Masterclasses have been offering young and emerging musicians valuable coaching from some of the world's finest chamber musicians, as well as networking and performance opportunities. One participating group is invited back each year to be the AFCM Fellowship Ensemble, touring the North Queensland region and working with students in secondary schools in our AFCM Outreach Tour and Workshops. This year we are excited to welcome back Zaza Road - find out more about their tour through the region and Townsville-Gurambilbarra here

Watch live as our AFCM artists coach the AFCM International Masterclasses ensembles during a series of free public masterclasses held at the Ville Resort-Casino. The AFCM International Masterclasses series and week-long tutelage program culminate in a fantastic concert later in the week.
