Upcoming Events

2nd Live-Streamed Recital from Glenfern

Postponement due to Stage 4 Restrictions

Due to the current Stage 4 restrictions here in Melbourne, our second live-streamed recital from Glenfern with pianists Darryl Coote and Robert Chamberlain, scheduled for Sunday August 30 at 6.30pm, has been postponed. Once Stage 4 restrictions are lifted (hopefully around mid-September) we will reschedule this joint recital, which features solo piano music from the French Baroque, works by Viennese Classical and German Romantic composers as well as compositions by Australian composers Arthur Benjamin and Peter Sculthorpe.

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.
