Mimir Festival founder and executive director, violinist Curt Thompson, reflects on Mimir's success and a life lived in music; “…some of my favourite moments are the rare opportunities to sit in the audience when I’m not playing in a particular piece, and to hear what this incredible group of musicians can create. Knowing I had a small part in putting them together to share this experience with a hall full of people is truly a privilege.” Read more on Precinct: http://go.unimelb.edu.au/23i6
