Experienced chamber music players who have a group together have the opportunity to perform at the Kirribilli Centre (KC). The aim is to hold a concert at 5 pm on the first Sunday of each month between March and December. They are variously referred to as the Kirribilli Concerts or the Sunset Concerts. KC volunteers provide refreshements after each concert, which amply covers the $10/$5 entry that they charge.
