Give now and double your impact! All donations will be matched until 30 June 2024

‘Through the AFCM Pathways Program we have the ability to provide a unique springboard for furthering a career in chamber music for young musicians in Australia. This is the greatest gift we can offer them and an experience that is entirely unique within the southern hemisphere.’ – Lloyd van’t Hoff, AFCM Pathways Program Director. 

As a leading Australian cultural organisation, AFCM is committed to actively nurturing the next generation of musical talent, and we strongly believe that regional students should have access to exceptional arts education experiences, no matter where they live.

Comprising both the AFCM International Masterclasses and regional schools Outreach touring, the AFCM Pathways programs are an essential complement to the Festival, ensuring our impact resonates far and wide, and well into the future.

Over the past thirty years, AFCM International Masterclasses alumni have forged successful global careers, and many now perform with some of the world’s most prestigious ensembles.

Through the AFCM Outreach program, regional students have the opportunity to experience live performances held in local schools and theatres, connect with peers and mentors, and be inspired to cultivate a life-long love of music or pursue a future career in the arts.

By donating to the AFCM Pathways programs, you're not only helping the next generation of musicians; you're also investing in the cultural vibrancy of our regional communities.

Until 30 June 2024, lead donors Philip Bacon AO, Michael Katz, and Frédérique Katz will match all donations towards these life-changing programs for young people, doubling the impact of any amount you can give.

Now is the perfect time to give and make a real difference for the future of chamber music. 

Thank you for giving what you can to help inspire, educate, and open doors for the next generation of music lovers and chamber musicians.

As a registered charity, all donations to AFCM over $2 are fully tax-deductible.
