This is a precarious time for the arts around the world. With so much uncertainty, it is difficult to plan ahead for the future, but music must continue to be performed and heard, artists must continue to practice their craft and strive to be always more informed and audiences deserve to have access to our music. Dependent, almost solely, as we have always been on ticket sales, it is especially difficult now. Government grants are available but are sparingly given and not often.

Selby & Friends pivoted quickly in 2020 to enable artists and our audiences to remain connected through the medium of digital technology and the beauty of high quality sound and film recordings of live performances. In 2021, with Sydney in lockdown and borders closed to other states, musical life came to a standstill but for the continued weekly visits by e-newsletter. Our 2021 and 2022 Seasons were minimally affected by COVID disuptions and we move forward with great hopes.

Now more than ever we need to ask for your assistance for our very survival so that we can continue to support our friends and colleagues, mentor young Australian artists and bring inspired and memorable experiences to our audience into the future.

Selby & Friends' activities are made possible largely with the support of our 'family of patrons' who donate with preference to Selby & Friends through Creative Partnerships Australia (CPA). Donations over $2 are eligible for tax deductions. You will receive a tax receipt directly from CPA. Read T&Cs online:




Selby & Friends wishes to acknowledge the extraordinary generosity of the patrons listed below, and those who also wish to remain anonymous, whose significant contribution continues to assist us in presenting concerts around Australia. With your help we have been able to plan the 2023 Season to which we are so looking forward.

Please visit Selby & Friends 2023 Season for more information.
