Concert Postponements due to COVID-19

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

Due to the corona virus situation, it is with much regret that at least the first four recitals in our 2020 series will be postponed:

  • Sunday April 19 at 6.30pm - Twilight Chamber Music at Rippon Lea
  • Sunday May 3 at 2.00pm - Barwon Park
  • Sunday May 17 at 6.30pm - Twilight Chamber Music at Rippon Lea
  • Sunday June 21 at 6.30pm - Twilight Chamber Music at Rippon Lea

We are conferring with our musician colleagues and venue partners, in regard to how we might reschedule these events to later dates and thus maintain the performance of great music by great musicians, and/or provide alternative means for our audiences to continue enjoying wonderful chamber music in 2020.

In the near future we will contact directly all those who hold tickets for our 2020 season and further announcements will be made on our website. Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
