The soothing and beautiful sounds of classical music drifted over the hills of Bangalow last weekend during the 17th annual Bangalow Music Festival.

Soloists and chamber musicians from around the world converged, with a highlight being the schools’ concert rendition of Prokofiev’s timeless tale – renamed Peta and the Wolf.

First-time visitors to the festival included NZ violin soloist Amalia Hall, US cello soloist David Requiro and leading contemporary dancers Rebecca Hall and Riley Baldwin, who performed in the festival’s first-ever dance program.
