The Port Fairy Spring Music Festival is an annual celebration of fine music, bringing together some of Australia’s best musicians in the idyllic town of Port Fairy.

Artistic Director, Anna Goldsworthy is delighted to announce a program bursting with recitals, conversations, pop-up recitals, master-classes, school concerts and much more. This year, the theme of the Festival is Visions and works of visionary composers will be brought to life with over 30 events and close to 60 performers.

Traversing the musical canon, the festival will present works by Beethoven, Bach, Mahler, Messiaen, Vivaldi, Janacek, Schubert and many others. Remembering Sculthorpe is a tribute to one of Australia’s great composers and Festival Patron.

Michael Griffiths explores Cole Porter’s timeless songs in a show penned by Anna Goldsworthy, while Robyn Archer and band take on the Great American Songbook. The soundtrack to a silent film will be improvised, and patrons can indulge in a singalong to favourite show tunes. Smoke-Encrypted Whispers is a remarkable musical response to the poems of Samuel Wagan Watson. The mystical and vividly coloured sonatas of Alexander Scriabin will be brought to life by eight festival pianists. The winners of the Mietta Song Competition perform Mahler and Messiaen; Press Play collaborates with artist Angela Cavalieri. Multi-instrumentalist, Adam Page Late Night will spontaneously compose intricate grooves.

‘It was a great joy to draw together a program celebrating visionary music throughout the ages: the forward-looking, the innovative, and the revolutionary. The festival’s program encapsulates my artistic view, of the critical nexus between tradition and renewal that lies at the heart of our practice’, says Anna Goldsworthy.
