The Huntington Estate Music Festival is held each year in the Barrel Room of the winery in Mudgee, an annual celebration of great music with a unique and warm atmosphere.
Artistic Director Carl Vine devises the musical content and, in keeping with the long and distinguished history of the Festival, each year features a stunning collection of prominent international artists and outstanding brilliant young artists alongside Australia's finest musicians in stimulating programs that run the full gamut of the chamber music experience.
All concerts include generous interval refreshments and are followed by gourmet meals and a selection of the best Huntington wines. Evening concerts are preceded by a choice of aperitifs, with the full wine service continuing through the concert interval and afterwards.
The Prelude Weekend is a 2 concert, “taste of Huntington” with 2 world-class chamber music concerts featuring headline Festival artists, accompanied by food and wine of the highest quality.
“a world-class annual festival of chamber music” ... “one of the country’s most iconic venues for chamber music with its imposing oak drums of fermenting wine looming high above the Steinway grand centre stage.”
“If you believe in heaven, it might just look a little like Huntington…”
“..each year features a stunning collection of prominent international performing artists alongside Australia's finest musicians, in stimulating programs that run the full gamut of the chamber music experience.”
