Sanguine Estate Music Festival

The SEMF Bendigo weekend continues to build as one of the country’s leading Classical Music Festivals with 5 concerts in Bendigo over the April weekend.  In the 2018 edition we are delighted to respond to the demand and expand its scope by extending the program to include a Sunday morning concert too! Our artist line-up is once again top-flight and unique, featuring such dazzling and loved Australia-based artists as Andrew Haveron, Ian Munro, Tobias Breider and Caroline Almonte. They are joined by our international guest, Stephen Stirling, one of Europe’s finest horn soloists and chamber musicians, and principal horn with the legendary Academy of St Martin in the Fields.

It will be a weekend of finest classical music and accompanied by complimentary glasses of Sanguine Estate Wine.
