At 7 pm on March 12 – the Bentley & Scott Cello Duo will perform in the Brolga Theatre foyer. The bar will be open for liquid refreshments. Normal social distancing rules will apply.
This will be the first ‘normal’ live concert for the MRAC, for classical music lovers in Maryborough since 2019.
The Maryborough Regional Arts Council organises four concerts a year – two classical and two jazz. The classical concerts are more refined and are held in the evening with concert type seating – the jazz performances are noisier and more rambunctious and are held in the afternoon in a table setting.
The Maryborough Regional Arts Council have been bringing art events and activities to the Fraser Coast for the past thirty years. The organisation is always happy to hear from young people who wish to make contact with them through their Facebook page with a view to advancing their artistic talents. Creativity in all its forms is a vital force that MRAC hopes to support and nurture for many years to come!
