Derek Warby Artist Management

Welcome to the website of Derek Warby Artist Management, home to some of the finest ensembles and musicians.

Derek Warby Artist Management was formed in the summer of 2007 to manage a range of leading chamber ensembles. Active in professional music management since 1980, Derek has worked with some of the world’s most established musicians and is now privileged to look after the Amstel Saxophone Quartet, Auricle Ensemble, Comberti-Cole Duo, Coull Quartet, Divertimenti Ensemble, Trio Goya, the Visontay-Kym Duo and the Zimro Ensemble, as well as Dutch jazz/swing violinist Tim Kliphuis, the comedy string quartet Graffiti Classics (including their innovative Playground Proms) and clarinettist Sarah Watts.


We are looking forward to a busy schedule throughout the remainder of 2023 and beyond. With things now back to normal, we hope to hear from you soon.
