If sitting close to the music in an intimate venue appeals to you, then put aside Sunday afternoons in your diary. Sundays at APA is here!

This concert series is all about immersing yourself completely in the music. Audience size is strictly limited to 30 people, so the musicians are up-close and the music will be a personal, very memorable experience.

This is a new venture for David Jones and Sergei Golovko who are co-producing the Sundays at APA concert series.

"We wanted to give people the experience of being very close to the musicians" says David. Music is an energy exchange between musicians and audience, and sometimes large venues leave you feeling a bit separate from what's happening on the stage. We won't even have a stage, so the feeling of being connected through the music is very present. The audience feels close to the musicians, and just as importantly, the musicians feel connected to the audience"

Sergei's venue is close to all the cafes and eateries of South Melbourne, so you can enjoy some refreshments before or after the concert. And the venue has another bonus - easy free parking in Wells Street, or at Officeworks.
