Upcoming Events

Spring Piano School 2020

will not take place this year

Due to the pandemic, we have decided not to run a Spring Piano School in 2020. This program normally takes place at the National Trust historic house Glenfern, in East St Kilda, where piano students currently at Primary or Secondary school and aged 8 to 18 years enjoy a program of piano classes, workshops and individual lessons with teaching staff that include experienced pianists and teachers from the Team plus special guests.

September, October Concert Postponements due to COVID-19

Dear Music-Lovers and Supporters of the Team of Pianists,

Due to the corona virus situation, the final two recitals in our 2020 series must, unfortunately, be postponed:

  • Sunday September 20 at 6.30pm - Twilight Chamber Music at Rippon Lea
  • Sunday October 11 at 3.00pm - Glenfern

Our hope is to reschedule these events to dates after the corona-virus pandemic has passed. For supporters who have already purchased tickets for these concerts please click here for an earlier email which explains the options for a refund, for credit to future events or for full or partial donation.

Do keep an eye on this website - we hope to hold two more live-streamed recitals from Glenfern once the lifting of restrictions allows this to happen, hopefully in October/November!
