About the Festival

The Orange Chamber Music Festival is an annual event, set to occur in the vicinity of the Autumn months in Orange, NSW. The stage is set in the city of colourful trees, sunny days and distinct cool climate. 

Established in 2019 the Orange Chamber Music Festival (OCMF) is the premier Art Music event of the Central West, featuring Australian and international ensembles and artists within a variety of venues around the colour city.

As a cultural destination Orange is bursting with modern cultural facilities, nestled within the Cultural Precinct in Byng St. Boutique hotels, art galleries, shops, cellar doors, experiences and fresh produce make Orange a welcoming and exciting destination within regional NSW.

To celebrate the city's vibrant cultural scene, OCMF has created Cultured, a free event that combines visual arts, heritage and music in a full day of activities around the cultural precinct. This event invites the community and visitors to enjoy chamber music of the highest caliber in and around our most prominent establishments, the Orange Regional Art Gallery, the Orange Regional Museum and the Civic Theatre.

Cultured fosters collaborations with institutions such as the Orange Regional Conservatorium through their Chamber Academy, engages local artists and organisations and often presents in parnertship with the Australian Digital Concert Hall, Musica Viva Australia and other relevant organisations.

The program of music presented at the 2022 Orange Chamber Music Festival was truly diverse which added to its ‘can-able’ freshness.

Known for their passionate and engaging performances, they have been hailed by The Australian as, “the future of Australian Chamber Music, the real deal.”
