Kirra Galleries News - Selby and Friends

This is our first Kirra Galleries News for 2012 in which we celebrate our tenth anniversary at Federation Square. It seems like only yesterday that the Premier of the day - Steve Bracks cut a ribbon at 11.00am and two minutes later walked into the Gallery.     

I have always been a lover of Classical music and am a great fan of Kathy Selby and her Trio, Selby and Friends.  Kathy is one of Australia's pre-eminent pianists and has been giving concerts at Melbourne University's Conservatorium, but is moving her venue to Federation Square's BMW Edge.  Our Gallery is thrilled at the move and is pleased to mark the occasion by welcoming the Trio and those members of the audience who are on our email list see details of special offers below.

I look forward to welcoming you for post concert cocktails and a chance to meet the artists on Wednesday 21 March 2012.
