Selby & Friends presents “chamber music at its best” (SMH) with six subscription seasons around Australia in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide, Turramurra and the NSW Southern Highlands, each presented five times per year.

Australian pianist Kathryn Selby, AM, created the concert series in 2007 and her guest artists include many of the finest solo and ensemble performers from Australia and around the world. The series is widely considered “world class” and of “the highest possible level of performance” with many hailing Ms Selby as not only an “entrepreneurial force” but amongst the finest of Australian artists. She was awarded the ‘AM’ as part of the Australia Day Honours, 2013. Please visit our website, www.selbyandfriends.com.au, to see more detail and listen to our concerts recorded live.

Our goals are to present memorable experiences with world-class events, to support young people in a learning capacity and to help them reach their professional potential, and to support Australia’s cultural life as a vital balancing element within strong communities. To that end we have been extremely successful as our strong subscriber base, mentoring programs and consistently stunning reviews from audiences and critics alike (and our popularity with national radio broadcasters) will attest.

The 2018 Season welcomes back many wonderful old friends who have enthralled audiences in previous seasons, and introduces two compelling virtuosic new guests. This Season is devoted to deconstructing the parts that make up the whole, with piano trios expanding to quartet and reducing to duos. The development of brilliant partnerships and the exploration of new musical worlds remains our focus.

It is thanks to the incredible generosity of chamber music lovers that we have been presenting Selby & Friends since 2007. As we move into our second decade, we would like to once again ask for your support to help Selby & Friends continue to bring performances and wonderful listening opportunities with first-class Australian and international musicians to our stages whilst managing to cover costs like venue hire, artist fees, travel, marketing and publicity. With your help, the Selby & Friends series can continue its broader inspirational outreach to children and young Australian artists, and enrich the communities in which we present concerts and the wider public through radio broadcasts. Our website has much more detail about the guest artists, live music, video content and links to social media. You can contact us directly at info@selbyandfriends.com,au or call us on 1300 511 099. www.selbyandfriends.com.au
