A message from the Artistic Director
I grew up on our family farm just out of Warren. My parents travelled thousands of kilometres over many years so that as a young girl I could experience violin and piano lessons, workshops, masterclasses, and concerts. It is now a great privilege to welcome many friends made whilst studying and performing around the world, into our world.
Warren is full of both obvious and hidden treasures. Travel to Warren Shire and take the time to seek them out on your visit.
And for the locals reading this message. Thank you.
Thank you for embracing music making. Thank you to the team of dedicated committee members who have brought this festival together.
With your continued support I have no doubt that this festival will flourish and become a unique event in the great Australian music landscape.
Enjoy delicious coffee and cake, something on the go or a sit down meal. Warren Shire has it all!

The Macquarie Marshes is one of the largest remaining inland semi-permanent wetlands in south-eastern Australia. It includes extensive areas of Phragmites reeds, River Red Gum woodlands and mixed marsh floodplains, and was listed as a Ramsar wetland of international importance in 1986.
The Macquarie Marshes is part of the traditional land of the Wailwan People who continue to maintain connections to country. The Marshes is particularly outstanding for its value as one of the most important nesting sites for waterbirds in Australia. A total of 77 waterbird species can be found in the Macquarie Marshes, including the threatened brolga, magpie goose, Australasian bittern and painted snipe. It also provides important habitat for 156 species of woodland bird and many other species of fish, turtles, frogs, snakes and mammals.
The Warren Chamber Music Festival wishes to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the Wayilwan land on which the festival takes place. We honour their Elders past, present and emerging.
