The Mimir Chamber Music Festival returns to its second home at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music from 28 August – 3 September, giving audiences the opportunity to experience some of the world's finest chamber musicians in action.

The world's leading chamber musicians

Fresh from its 20th season in Fort Worth, Texas, the Mimir Chamber Music Festival returns to the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music from 28 August to 3 September 2017.

Mimir has been listed as a “summer hotspot” in The New York Times and Travel & Leisure magazine, and a “Top 10 Musical Event of the Year" by The Dallas Morning News eight times in a row.

Named for the Norse god of wisdom, the festival was founded in 1998 by Dr Curt Thompson, now Associate Professor of Violin and Head of Strings at the Melbourne Conservatorium.

During the week-long festival, Mimir artists will present four public performances and guide students from the Melbourne Conservatorium in a range of masterclasses.
