    Concert d'aujourd'hui

  • Formed in 2014, Duo Vela aim to challenge the traditional audience and performer relationship. They encourage audience members to ask questions, take pictures and record, and occasionally use multi-media to enhance the audio and visual experience for the audience.

    The result is a memorable music experience which indulges the senses and celebrates musical origins.

    All are welcome to attend this concert event. Tickets are on sale and priced between $25-$30. To make a booking, please visit

    During intermission free drinks (including beer and wine) will be served and there will be lots of snacks to nibble on, all included in the ticket price!
