Australian Composers 2023

In curating each Festival, Artistic Director Myee Clohessy delights in programming excellent Australian works and our audiences treasure the opportunity to hear these talented composers discuss their craft and inspiration.


It has been a privilege to have had visiting composers such as Elena Kats-Chernin, Lyle Chan, Gordon Kerry, Andrew Ford, John Peterson, Sally Whitwell, Nicholas Vines, Sally Greenaway, Ann-Carr Boyd and May Howlett all attended BAMF and shared their musical stories with our audiences. In addition, we have heard music by Matthew Hindson, Iain Grandage, Nick Wales, Peggy Glanville Hicks, Robert Davidson, Nigel Westlake, and Maria Grenfell featured at past festivals. 

Thanks to the incredible generosity of donors, the Bowral Autumn Music Festival has been thrilled to be able to commission and host the World Premiere performances of new works, thus providing wonderful opportunities for talented emerging Australian composers such as Sarah-Elise Thompson, Alice Chance, and Ella Macens.

For BAMF 2023 we extend a warm welcome to all the Australian composers listed below and look forward with great excitement to hearing their programmed works.
