Directors Welcome

For our fifth year anniversary of SEMF Bendigo we are pulling out all stops: not one, but two international star artists will be featured: Jonathan Kelly, Principal Oboe of the Berlin Philharmonic, and Benjamin Baker, an international prize-winning young violinist who is making a remarkable career both in Europe and the U.S. We are delighted to welcome back Wilma Smith to join the SEMF musicians family of Ian and Tobi in presenting some chamber music favourites by Schubert, Mozart, Dvorak and Brahms, as well as some extraordinary works by C.P.E. Bach  and Janacek.

We continue with our Sunday morning recital featuring a star of the future, this time the incredible cellist Caleb Wong, who at just 20 years of age has already appeared as soloist with both Orchestra Victoria and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.

The much-loved coffee concert and master class will once again be part of our program. With a glass of award-winning Sanguine Estate wine in hand, please enjoy the beautiful venues of Bendigo resonating once more with thrilling music-making!
