The City of Glen Eira is hosting a series of 8 free concerts every Sunday throughout October and November. Each concert is at a different park in the City of Glen Eira, covering Caulfield, Bentleigh, Elsternwick and surrounding areas.
The series kicked off on Sunday 5 October with piano accordian and violin duo "Bohemian Nights". Typical of what you can expect from this series, it was a laid back affair - no frills acoustic sounds in an intimate surrounding. Bohemian Nights played a range of songs including Gypsy and Parisian tunes, as well as a tango that inspired a few pairs from the crowd to strut with purpose.

Unlike other events held by the City of Glen Eira, this one is solely about the performance. You won't find any food vans, craft stalls or free council balloons here. Everything is BYO, so bring your own blanket or fold up chair, some afternoon snacks and refreshments, and just lay back and enjoy. If you are taking young kids out to the park anyway, you might as well take them to one of these events, where you can enjoy the atmosphere while they run around in the playground.
