CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES: Stage Sessions 3.0

Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC) invites you to to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to be part of our successful initiative, Stage Sessions, which will take place from the 22-24 April 2022.

What is the Redland Performing Arts Centre?

The Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC) is the premier cultural venue for Redland City. It houses three stages and includes a Concert Hall with a seating capacity for 550 people. RPAC is more than a venue; it is an incubator and hub for local talent and skills. These Jam Sessions will provide an outstanding opportunity for all musicians to practice their music with professional and community musicians in a world-class performance setting and stage.

RPAC is extremely committed to supporting the development of local artists and musicians, and we understand that access to quality infrastructure is sometimes prohibitive. This opportunity provides access to our technicians, equipment and venue with absolutely zero cost to the user.

What are Stage Sessions?  

Would you like to perform on a professional concert hall stage with your own band or solo? Redlands Coast's most incredible music venue – the RPAC Concert Hall will provide you with the opportunity to do just that. 

RPAC’s Stage Sessions, is an exciting initiative providing invaluable support to local musicians and performers in a creative environment – utilising our stunning Concert Hall.

Full sound equipment and technicians will be supplied to you, as you take part in a designated time slot at RPAC, in front of your adoring fans. 

This innovative program is available for now in our very busy calendar of events.

Artists have the power to alter our perceptions, provide alternate views and bring us together as a more connected community.

RPAC hold artists and creatives in high esteem and is proud to deliver opportunities and programs to support the growing Redlands Coast creative sector.

For further information about these and other opportunities, email Elaine.Seeto@redland.qld.gov.au
