The 10th anniversary season of Selby & Friends will continue with Musical Offering, the third concert of the series featuring some of the finest chamber musicians in the world.

Musical Offering will see cellist Timo-Veikko Valve and violinist Nikki Chooi join Australian pianist Kathryn Selby, in touring metropolitan and regional venues around Australia in June, presenting distinctive performances in an intimate setting.

Canadian violinist and rising star, Nikki Chooi, won First Prize at the prestigious Michael Hill International Violin Competition in 2013, before completing extensive recital tours with Chamber Music New Zealand and Australia’s Musica Viva and recording his debut album. Described as “vigourous and colourful” by the New York Times, Chooi is a passionate chamber musician who has been touted as one to watch.

Valve, has performed numerous times with Selby and the pair often seek out opportunities to perform together whenever Valve’s busy schedule as Principal Cello with the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO) permits. Finnish-born Valve is renowned as one of the most versatile musicians of his generation, having performed as a soloist around the world, while also performing with the ACO since 2006.

Kathryn Selby boasts a string of international and Australian performance awards appraising her ‘formidable talent’, as the Artistic Director of the company that is marking 10 years of successfully creating acclaimed musical collaborations.
