Schools Concerts: Game Day!

Monday 14th October
10.00am – 3.00 pm

What do professional sport and classical music have in common? Both feature performers who train for hours so they can do what they love for their fans.

Join the musicians of The Phoenix Collective Quartet, as they explore what it means to work together to accomplish their goals, and find out how teamwork really does make the dream work.


These free events for Southwest Victorian primary schools students are presented in partnership with Australia’s Musica Viva in Schools. Local schools are invited to reserve places for their students. For enquiries and booking details, please contact festival administration at: contact@portfairyspringfest.com.au


The iconic St John’s Anglican Church was built in 1856 from local bluestone quarried within the church grounds, and has held continuous worship ever since.

Join us for the local parish’s early morning worship on Sunday 13th October, which will include a featured performance from outstanding triple harpist Hannah Lane.


Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October 9.30am – 4.00pm

Call in between concerts, or stay for some hours, at this popular event! Enjoy coffee and a snack while Festival artists, masterclass students and audience members pop in all day to entertain and chat. A schedule will be posted at The Hub on the Friday afternoon.
