Floriade 2017: Rhythm and Blooms Festival

Pack a picnic, invite a friend along and spend your lunchtime with two weeks of free hour-long concerts hosted by ANU School of Music in partnership with Floriade. The Rhythm & Blooms Festival series weaves music among the flowers: from classical to pop, experimental repertoire to jazz to contemporary compositions. Rhythm & Blooms 2017 features the best and brightest new musical talent in Canberra. Join us as ANU School of Music staff, students and alumni and local talent perform in the picturesque outdoor setting of Commonwealth Park.
