2011 season

Led by the exceptional and charismatic Australian concert pianist, Kathryn Selby, 2011 will mark Selby & Friends' 5th season and it is one in which she has invited a group of artists amongst this country's finest who will focus on extraordinary music for the small ensemble. With seasons described as "full of gems" and performances "to be treasured", Ms Selby has put together programs which will reflect not only icons of the repertoire, but some unusually beautiful, seldom heard works by legendary composers and some thrilling favourites by great Australians.
