Klavier Music Association Inc.

Patron - Her Excellency Mrs Linda Hurley
An association for people who enjoy piano and other keyboard music

What is Klavier?

The Klavier Music Association began in Canberra in 1989 to promote the appreciation, teaching and performance of keyboard music. Over the years it has become recognised as an organisation which encourages quality performances in front of a supportive audience.

Klavier musicians perform in salon-style concerts of around one hour, on such instruments as the piano, pipe organ, harpsichord and electronic keyboard. From time to time they join with players of other instruments in ensembles.

Klavier is also an association for those who love to listen to music. The contribution of these members is their support and encouragement of the performers.

Membership subscription

The annual subscription is $30 per member. Centrelink pensioners, full-time students under 25 and additional family members pay the reduced rate of $25. Memberships must now be paid online. Please contact the Treasurer for bank details. You must put your name under the description of payment.

The subscription year begins on 1 April. Anyone joining after 1 September need pay only half the annual fee for their first membership year.

Activities and benefits

Klavier’s main activity is the holding of regular concerts called Socials, usually on the fourth Sunday afternoon of the month from March to November. Another major event is known as Klavier Unlimited. This is held annually for members to play longer pieces. Activities take place in a variety of venues, in members’ homes, or other noteworthy places. They are followed by refreshments to which members contribute. This time enables members and friends to socialise and to discuss musical items with the performers.

The above events are free of charge to members. Guests are welcome and asked to make a paper note donation.

Klavier publishes a newsletter named Leading Note. It includes reviews of events, other information about the Association and items of interest.

Klavier also hosts student concerts twice each year around May and October. These allow young performers to gain confidence in a non-competitive environment.

Klavier also sponsors or promotes other musical activities in Canberra.
