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 Canberraâ€™s Centenary year. The Festival program features over 30 concerts of classical, contemporary and jazz performed by national and international artists, together with Canberraâ€™s own wonderful choirs and musicians.
This yearâ€™s program explores the contributions of Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony to Canberraâ€™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.
