The Spring Early Music Festival is a unique event in Melbourne’s artistic calendar. Now in its fourth year, the Festival brings together University students, recent graduates, local and visiting professionals for 14 events over 13 days, including masterclasses, pre-concert talks and concerts. No other Festival combines such a variety of artists with years of experience alongside youthful excitement to present a program of stunning virtuosity and passionate insight.

American virtuoso lutenist Hopkinson Smith comes to Melbourne for the first time to perform along side younger emerging artists from overseas and closer to home. Satyr’s Band, Dutch-based ensemble lead by recorder player & oboist Amy Power, and distinguished Spanish pianist Enrique Pérez de Guzmán also give their first performances in Melbourne. Trinity Chapel will come alive when violinists Lorenzo Colitto and Lisa Ferguson and viola player Peter Bucknell join with Melbourne Collegium, an orchestra of young early string specialists, to present a concert of Baroque favorites. And the Australian Chamber Choir brings the music of mid-16th century composer Simon Boyleau, chapel master of the Cathedral of Milan, back to life with the premier modern performance of these beautiful motets. The Festival culminates with a student opera production Récréation de Musique, a French musical entertainment devised and directed by French Baroque specialist Greg Dikmans.
