Maureen Wheeler AO, co-founder of Lonely Planet travel guides and Melbourne’s Wheeler Centre has accepted the role of Jury Chair for the 7th Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition (11-19 July 2015). Maureen is an inspiration: an entrepreneur and philanthropist, she is both committed and involved in the arts. The role of Jury Chair is an important non-voting position that supports the international jury in their deliberations. We are very much looking forward to working with Maureen next year.
