Kirribilli Concerts

Experienced chamber music players who have a group together have the opportunity to perform at Kirribilli. These concerts are held several times a year at the Kirribilli Neighbourhood Centre, commencing 5pm on Sunday afternoons (hence they are sometimes referred to as Sunset Concerts).  The venue is a heritage-listed sandstone building (more detail) at 16-18 Fitzroy St, Kirribilli near the intersection with Jeffrey St, a 5-minute stroll from Milsons Point railway station.  There are no ferries to the nearby Milsons Point wharf on Sundays. 

Members, if you have a group that would like to perform at Kirribilli, please contact the organiser (see below - use Membership Register for contact details).   Don't feel inhibited by lack of time to prepare the whole of a multi-movement work; our audiences will be happy to hear part of a work, such as a single movement!
