As in previous years, the program is an intriguing mix of traditional and contemporary classical pieces, performed by both acclaimed and novice performers.
Weaving its way through the festival are the elements of the Music by Youth project.
This project, in part funded by the Australia Government through its Festivals Australia program provides the opportunity for local music students of all ages to interact, learn and work with professional musicians and give public performances.
The project has been actively and generously supported by the Acacia Quartet who mentor, record and perform the works of selected HCS music students from schools in Bellingen and Coffs Harbour.
Along side this is an exciting range of Fringe events not to be missed in the local cafes, busking in the street, as well as inspiring musical workshops for kids of all ages.
