What are Jam Sessions 2021?

Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC) invites you to to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to be part of our new initiative, Jam Sessions, which will take place in early September 2021.

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 Jam Sessions?

First there was Stage Sessions … Now we are proud to release Jam Sessions. 

Take a break from rehearsing in your garage, or bedroom and come play in Redlands Coast's most incredible music venue – the RPAC Concert Hall. 

RPAC’s Jam Sessions, is an exciting new initiative providing invaluable support to local musicians 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 rehearsal time onsite at RPAC, without fear of disturbing your neighbours. 

This is a pilot program for now, but we hope to extend this further where we are able to find spaces in a busy calendar of events.

Dates
