Don't miss these three free concerts taking place in February

You are encouraged to bring a picnic, your dog (on a short leash), pillows and blankets, and kick back to listen to this great range of free entertainment.

Food and non-alcoholic drinks will be available for sale (you can BYO alcohol if you wish).

The first concert on 6th February takes place at Beckett Park, Balwyn (enter from Parring Road). The strong lineup for this concert is:

- soul singer Emma Donovan and The Putbacks

- young dynamic Melbourne musician Tash Sultana, and

- the evocative Gena Rose Bruce.

In the final concert of the series, on 20th February at the Canterbury Gardens, you will be carried on an eclectic journey through some of opera's well-known and classic favourites. Karen Van Spall and Adam Miller will lead the audience through an evening of whimsy, romance and high drama.
