Welcome

Whether you are a local or live in the wider region, you should find something interesting and attractive here if you love fine music.  The Upcoming Events tab at the top of this page will take you straight to details of our concert program.

GFG was established in 1998 with assistance from Southern Tablelands Arts to provide access to the arts for the local Gunning region and for the “beautification” of Gunning village.  Other community organisations now care for our streetscapes.  But we continue, as we have for some 25 years, to serve as a small “Musica Viva” for the district, presenting around 5 – 9 affordably-priced fine music concerts each year.

Most of our concerts are in the recently refurbished historic Court Room: Gunning’s Home of Chamber Music.  Larger-scale shows are hosted in our Shire Hall, which is being upgraded to transform into a great performance space.  While we emphasise classical music, we happily host musicians from other genres.

Thank You
