There was an official Opening on Saturday February 2 at 2:00 pm. in the Main Hall and the exhibition will run until April 20.

The paintings will be on display during Gallery hours; Wednesdays to Fridays from 10.00am to 3:00pm and Saturdays 9.30am to 12:00noon.

Grand Piano

Grand PianoWe have a grand piano available for classical music concerts. It is an excellent Yamaha and is well maintained and regularly tuned. Concert pianists of the Sydney Conservatorium and visiting pianists of other orchestras have always admired the quality of pitch and tone of the piano.

The photograph shows Subin Park playing the piano during the Sydney Conservatorium annual concert tour in 2014.
