While our 2020 series had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, in 2021 we are now planning how and where we will present as many of the 2020 series recitals as possible! We start in March, April and May, with three contrasting recitals at Glenfern, the National Trust's 19th century Gothic mansion in East St Kilda, each presented in a hybrid live-stream and/or small socially-distanced live-audience format, twice on the same day. Choose to attend the venue as part of a small socially-distanced audience or enjoy the recital as a live-stream via YouTube from the comfort of your own home!
As more venues become accessible and hopefully covid restrictions can be eased towards the second half of 2021, we look forward to presenting more of the 2020 recital programs with our wonderful guest artists.

For patrons who hold an un-refunded booking from our 2020 season, we are pleased to offer exchange of your 2020 ticket purchase for any of the 2021 concerts, including the first three above. If you booked a ticket in for a concert in 2020, you can exchange that one-for-one for a live-audience attendance ticket in 2021 - subject to seat availability. Please note, that due to social distancing, density limits and our covid-safe plan, only a limited number of in-venue audience tickets are available for the 2021 concert sessions above.
Alternatively, we will exchange a live-audience attendance ticket from our 2020 season for two 2021 live-stream digital online viewing tickets.
Of course, you may still request a refund for your as-yet-unrefunded 2020 ticket purchase too.
To effect any of these exchanges, or to request a refund from your 2020 season purchase, please email our office with details of your 2020 purchase and your request for the 2021 concerts: firstname.lastname@example.org
