AFCM - Opening Night - New Beginnings

Description

Back with a bang! Finally, we have the chance to come together and celebrate our beautiful art form in Townsville for the first time in three years. Let’s celebrate!

On opening night, we welcome Festival artists performing music that signifies New Beginnings and all things natural. From the belated world premiere of Deborah Cheetham’s Welcome to the Country - Nginda Ngarrini Bi Ngya, through Berio’s Opus Number Zoo, to Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals we will perform some of the finest music that nature has to offer.
