In 2019, the Australian Discovery Orchestra commenced 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 received the support of the Sir Arnold Bax Estate through its trustees to whom we are indebted for their generous assistance.

The inaugural Festival was held in early September 2019 and will return in 2021.

More information on the 2019 Festival can be viewed here.
