The JB Classical Music Festival 2017 invites you on a journey to experience classical music that transcends generations, soundscapes and cultures. 

This year we explore the synchronisation of influences, styles, and ideas – illustrating music at its most universal, as it tells stories of the times we find ourselves in (or out of) sync.
