including the High Court, Sildenafil
the National Film and Sound Archives, the Shine Dome, Llewellyn Hall, the National Museum and the National Arboretum.

The Festival runs from the 10-19 May 2013 and there is no better way to celebrate Canberra’s Centenary year. The Festival program features over 30 concerts of classical, contemporary and jazz performed by national and international artists, together with Canberra’s own wonderful choirs and musicians.

This year’s program explores the contributions of Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony to Canberra’s initial conception and its development as both world city and living city. We will bring Walter and Marion to life and let them tell you about their vision for the city. It promises to be something special.


Highlights include:

  • The world premiere of Peter Sculthorpe’s dramatic oratorio Great South Land about the discovery of Australia;
  • Outstanding Dutch celloist Pieter Wispelwey, Madeleine Mitchell, the Song , Company, NZ String Quartet, TaikOz and Synergy Percussion;

  • Music from the West coast of the US including John Adams and Paul Dresher;
  • JS Bach’s Easter Cantatas; and
