Australian Festival of Chamber Music 26 July – 3 August 2013


Theme & Variations Piano Services are Platinum Sponsors of the Australian Festival of Chamber Music based in north Queensland.  Other Platinum Sponsors in 2013 include Townsville City Council, James Cook University, Jupiters Townsville and Sealink.


The Festival brings together outstanding musicians from around the world and around Australia, musicians who won’t necessarily be performing elsewhere in Australia. They play beautiful music in comparatively small venues, in a tropical setting of blue skies and perfect temperatures.


This combination of quality musicians and music in a laid back tropical atmosphere creates an intimate experience where you don’t just admire their skill from afar, but bump into them at events and around town.


For the past few years, Theme & Variations Piano Services have supplied concert and rehearsal pianos for the Festival and Winterschool.


Customers have the unique ability to buy these fine pianos at rarely reduced prices.  Please contact Theme & Variations as soon as you can to see what is on offer this year.  


‘Expressions of Interest’ is now open for the concert grand pianos Theme & Variations are bringing in especially for concerts.  Often these instruments are ‘pre-sold’ before the Festival commences and buyers are given special opportunities that may not be offered outside Festival time.
