Formerly the Nelson School of Music, the Nelson Centre of Musical Arts is the natural home of the Festival and following extensive strengthening and redevelopment will be the principal venue of the Festival in 2022.

Comfortable seats, silent air-conditioning and most importantly world class acoustics for chamber music are what makes the Nelson School of Music auditorium one of the best in the Southern hemisphere for chamber music concerts.
