Concerts – 2020

Concert Calendar – 2020

In response to COVID-19

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Lyrebird Music Society concerts for 2020 have been postponed. This is informed by advice issued by health authorities in order to minimise the risk and spread of Covid-19 and to prioritise the health and safety of our audience and musicians.

We are busy planning our 2021 concert series featuring Australia’s leading chamber musicians. This will be a celebration of the society’s 100th anniversary and will honour the extraordinary musical contribution of its founder Louise Hanson-Dyer (1884-1962).

We look forward to seeing you in the new year.
