In 2019, the Australian Discovery Orchestra will commence the only festival in the world solely dedicated to the extraordinary music of British composer, Sir Arnold Bax (1883 – 1953).

As the Festival’s Artistic Director, I am delighted to announce that this biennial Festival has recently received the support of the Sir Arnold Bax Estate through its trustees to whom we are indebted.

The program for the inaugural Festival, which will include a world premiere live performance, will be made with the forthcoming Australian Discovery Orchestra 2019 concert season announcement.
