Huntington Estate Music Festival 30th and Final Edition
This spring, experience World-Class chamber music concerts, gourmet canapés and meals, and award-winning wine in the beautiful rustic setting of the Barrel Hall and grounds of the Huntington Estate Winery in Mudgee.
Since 1989, the Huntington Estate Music Festival has been held each year in the Huntington Estate Barrel Room, a fantastic space with "one of the greatest acoustics on the planet" (Richard Tognetti) and a unique atmosphere. All concerts include generous interval refreshments and are followed by gourmet meals and a selection of the best Huntington wines. Evening concerts are preceded by a choice of aperitifs, with the full wine service continuing through the concert interval and afterwards with dinner.
"A Festival the likes of which it would be hard to find anywhere else in the world. The music, the sunshine, the audience, the birdsong, the vines, the friendships made, the emotions created, all within this nest in the hills. Australia has one of the best chamber music festivals in the world in the Huntington Festival and Musica Viva with Carl Vine are ensuring it just keeps getting better." ABC Classic FM
