Musica da Camera usually presents four programs of string music per year.  Generally, each program is presented twice, with a concert in Canberra and a concert in a nearby regional community. We also prepare some programs for special events.


We have just finished preparing and presenting our second program for the year - "Suites and Serenades" under the direction of Brad Tham.  It was Brad's debut as conductor of Musica da Camera and a very successful one. You can read the flattering review  here.

Our third program for 2024 will be presented in September, and preparation will begin at the end of July.  The program be directed by Shilong Ye and will feature music of seven Australian female composers, including well known names such as Elena Kats-Chernin, Margaret Sutherland and Sally Greenaway.   More details soon.
