Vietnamese-born Khoi Bui commenced piano lessons during primary school, in Perth. He followed this with further tuition as a distraction from his medical studies at Adelaide University, mentored by the distinguished Australian composer Stephen Whittington. After specialising in Cardio-thoracic surgery, Dr Bui stepped out of the operating theatre for four years of keyboard study at The Conservatory of Music, University of Melbourne, studying with Professor Max Cooke (piano) and Anne Morgan (harpsichord). After graduating, Khoi founded the baroque chamber group Ensemble Systolica, touring concerts and stage performances to Castlemaine Festival, Mt Beauty Music Festival, Adelaide Festival, Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, and a host of regional venues.
For the last few years, Khoi has been hosting "not-for-profit" house concerts in Healesville, featuring younger musicians performing in chamber ensembles and solo recitals. These concerts have featured international artists and many of Australia's finest award-winning young musicians, performing works from Renaissance through to 21st Century. If you have an interest in instrumental and/or vocal music performance, please call, so that Khoi can put you on the mailing list for these concerts, and you will receive advance notice of dates and booking arrangements: Michael 0413 058 361
