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 Amstel Saxophone Quartet, Auricle Ensemble, Comberti-Cole Duo, Coull Quartet, Divertimenti Ensemble, Meraki Duo, Primavera Chamber Ensemble, the Visontay-Kym Duo and the Zimro Ensemble, as well as Dutch jazz/swing violinist Tim Kliphuis, the comedy string quartet Graffiti Classics and clarinettist Sarah Watts.


DWAM is delighted to announce that all artists are available for events in 2022 and beyond. We look forward to hearing from you.
