English Music Festival: Digital tickets

Digital tickets

The 3MBS English Music Festival returns in 2024 with four concerts celebrating chamber, solo and choral music from the British Isles over two days in August.

Audiences will be taken on a dynamic artistic journey that covers three centuries of English music from Purcell to Britten and Australian composers of English descent.  

Experience the profound six choral motets that are the Songs of Farewell by Hubert Parry, Requiem by Herbert Howells, the ethereal Lark Ascending my Vaughan-Williams and a diverse range of chamber and solo works by Delius, Britten, Bridge and Elgar, among others.

Join us for this premier event to experience familiar and rarely-heard works by these English musical masters.
