Now a fixed feature of the festival, Argonaut String Quartet returns in 2016 with a premiere-packed programme including a BIFEM Box Office commission to Mexican-born, Madrid-based composer Sergio Luque. Sergio will be in Bendigo as a guest of the festival for the creation of his first string quartet. David Chisholm’s Bound South will be his second world premiere in 2016, commissioned by BIFEM’s foundation patrons Joan and Barry Miskin. BIFEM audiences will experience the iconic Bendigo Town Hall for the first time in our dynamic history in this audience-favourite formation of Argonaut.
