ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Every year in May/June, 4MBS Classic FM produces the 4MBS Festival of Classics – Australia’s largest classical music festival. Orchestras, choirs, ensembles and soloists from south-east Queensland perform concerts centred around a theme – whether it be to mark the anniversaries of specific composers, or simply celebrate the wonderful music that has come out of a particular location. Past themes have included Great Russian Masters, the British Connection, the Glory of Vienna, the French Connection and many more.
On average, the Festival features 20-30 concerts in 10-15 venues, predominantly in Brisbane but throughout south-east Queensland. The Festival also extends to the airwaves, where we broadcast featured music programs surrounding that year’s theme.
