The Melba Festival and Nightingale

Inspired by the magic that made Dame Nellie Melba an international star in the early 1900s, the Melba Festival celebrated music, arts, wine, food, heritage, racing and the many other community segments which have made the Yarra Valley internationally famous.

The 2007 festival celebrated the centenary of Dame Nellie Melba’s first concerts in Melbourne and showcased some of Australia’s finest musical talent through an exciting program of concerts. This included performances by internationally acclaimed artists such as Duo Sol, Flinders Quartet, Alison Jones and Helen Noonan.

In commemoration of Dame Nellie Melba’s first Melbourne performance TarraWarra Museum of Art mounted the Nightingale exhibition, which displayed art and memorabilia of Australia’s greatest performer. TarraWarra Museum of Art also hosted musical performances throughout the three day festival including performances by Alison Jones, Helen Noonan, The Benaud Trio, Amir Farid, Raymond Yong & Jessica Ipkendanz, Xenia Devitkina-Loh and Stefan Cassomenos.
