Australian String Quartet with guest artist Laurence Matheson

Spend divine days with us in Victoria’s Southern Grampians as we explore and celebrate the intimate world of chamber music. Shepherded by the inimitable The Hon Barry Jones AC and joined by wonderful guest artist Laurence Matheson, we shine torchlights on classic composers and living luminaries.

With intimate concerts in the charming Mt Sturgeon Woolshed and Myers’ Library, and the warm hospitality of the iconic Royal Mail Hotel, tickets to this festival are in high demand.

Dunkeld is a truly magical regional environment within the Southern Grampians and lends a unique charm to this sought-after highlight of the ASQ’s touring calendar.
