The Darling Music Experience, now in its 11th season, brings first class chamber music to the West Coast. Our aim is to give pleasure and to entertain without compromising on the quality of the music. The programme is presented by highly rated local and international musicians in a fresh, exciting and occasionally provocative way, making Darling “possibly the best small music festival in the country”. However music lovers don’t just flock in for a specific concert or two; quite a few come for a day out in the country to experience West Coast hospitality, peace and tranquillity.
In February they will again be able to enjoy a bouquet of opera, chamber music, crossover and jazz. Here are just a few highlights:
-A Musical Sunset Dinner at !Khwa ttu with the Cavatina Trio on Saturday, 30 January
-The Piano Battle: What used to be duels at previous festivals in Darling turns into a battle.
