Canberra’s art and event calendar is steadily filling up for 2022, with the Canberra International Music Festival announcing its program for the 10-day event in April and May. The theme will be Pole to Pole – a musical adventure that takes listeners around the world and reminds us of the planet’s diversity, even though we have all had something in common. Artistic director Roland Peelman said the festival was meant to celebrate diversity. “From the tropics to the poles, from the mountains to the deserts, people have always been looking for ways to cross the difficult places and find new routes to venture through while enjoying the comfort of our coastal trails,” he said. “Next year’s festival is about the routes. It’s about the tracks, the paths and what we discover along the way; the wonders of nature.” READ MORE: The program, which extends over 10 days and includes 41 events, will include early works from Spain, new music from Australia, the Middle East and the “very best” European traditions. “We present Polish music like never before and want to shed light on our neighbors, the land of the long white cloud,” Mr Peelman said. “Then there is the Blue Poles, the Jackson Pollock painting in the National Gallery of Australia, which will see a concert of newly commissioned work in the gallery.” There will also be several free events, such as the Ears Up Dog Concert – a concert for our four-legged friends and their master – specially adapted pitch material for hypersensitive ears, Soundwalks – acoustic ecology through quiet group walks and the Daily Drill – a series of free lunch concerts at ANU Drill Hall Gallery. The Canberra International Music Festival runs from April 29 to May 8 with tickets on sale from November 29. Visit to see the full program.
