Experienced chamber music players who have a group together have the opportunity to perform at the Kirribilli Centre (KC). The aim is to hold a concert at 3 pm on the first Sunday of alternate months between April and December. KC volunteers provide refreshements after each concert, which amply covers the $15/$10 entry that they charge.
