MUSIC FESTIVAL BEGINS


TUESDAY night was the opening of the Murray River International Music Festival, http://www.artsmildura.com.au/mrimf/  a week of baroque music by mostly visiting Italian musicians, in it's tenth year now and organised by stefano's musician brother, maestro sergio di pieri.
After a day of printing i went to the opening at Ampelon, an amazing five acre garden in Gol Gol.
Picnic tea with new friends first then music as the evening gradually drew in - i got to watch a spider weaving a web in the tree above me and as it became dark tiny bats flew in and out of the lights.
gorgeous.
