Rachel is Artistic Director of the Stradbroke Chamber Music Festival, which she co-founded in 2007 (along with Jani Haenke). The festival takes place on the beautiful North Stradbroke Island, a sub-tropical island near Brisbane, Queensland. From its humble beginnings as a few concerts performed by friends, the festival has grown into a full-blown community event that includes 6 performances, an education program with the local school as well as an intensive chamber music course involving Queensland Conservatorium students. In 2016 the concerts were recorded and broadcast by ABC Classic FM. The festival is proud to have such loyal and vibrant community support.
