Heralding from a sold-out final concert from 2017, Friends of Music Series return in 2018 with a stellar lineup of top Melbourne emerging musicians, boasting from a variety of styles ranging from classical, folk to jazz and contemporary performances. 
In our last and final concert day in November, we welcome pianist Raymond Shon.  

About the Artist
Raymond was born in Korea in 1991 and moved to Australia in 2003. He completed his Bachelor of Music Degree with Honours from the  Melbourne Conservatorium of Music in 2013. During this period he was also Organ Scholar at Scots’ Church Melbourne. In 2017 Raymond graduated from the Sibelius Academy, Helsinki, Finland, where he obtained his Master of Music in piano performance. In addition to his piano studies, Raymond is experienced as an organist, conductor, composer, accompanist, harpsichordist, researcher, orchestral keyboardist, chamber musician and piano teacher. Apart from listening to and reading about music, Raymond's other interests include: mechanical wristwatches, walks with the wife, and good food. In 2014, Raymond was the first to perform Ferruccio Busoni’s Six Elegies in Melbourne, and in 2016, he curated and performed in a concert to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Busoni's birth. The concert was recorded and broadcast by Finnish national radio YLE1. Raymond’s programme notes written for the concert were translated and also used in the broadcast.
