The Sydney Chamber Music Festival 2018 presents

‘Figuratively Speaking’

This year, the Sydney Chamber Music Festival will present music in relation to the fascinating art works of Australian artist Robert Dickerson AO (30 March 1924 – 18 October 2015).

Known as a figurative painter, Dickerson’s works are inspired by people and scenes and are often described as melancholy with isolated figures, menacing dark streetscapes and anguished facial expressions characterising his painting. This opens up a huge realm of music which SCMF Artistic Director, Bridget Bolliger, is delighted to curate alongside a line up of outstanding artists, as always!

For the first time in a decade, the Sydney Chamber Music Festival has received recognition and support and this comes from the Australian Elizabethan Theatre Trust (AETT).
The AETT supports the arts in Australia and has done so for over 60 years by providing financial assistance to individual artists, groups and companies.

Thanks to the AETT, our festival can realise it’s full potential, offering 5 outstanding concert programs which remain accessible to all.
