'Coming to a Cushion Concert' book launch
Capital Venues and Events will tomorrow launch its very own book, Coming to a Cushion Concert, based on its popular Cushion Concerts program.
The book was written by Liz Duthie and was illustrated by Jacqui Lynch.
Capital Venues and Events has been programming Cushion Concerts since 2013, providing pre-school children with the opportunity to experience live performances in a welcoming, affordable and child-friendly environment.
Arts Officer Rohan Phillips said the book had been created with support from Creative Victoria.
“We thought it would be a nice way for children to share and relive their experience with family and friends,” Mr Phillips said.
“When they read the book, children will recognise features of The Capital; the columns and portico steps at the front entrance, the carpet and signs in the foyer area as well as the cushions and tent inside.
“The Cushion Concerts have been one of our favourite community programs. They offer young children the chance to experience some outstanding performances from local as well as internationally recognised performers.
“We’re excited to be launching this new book as a way to celebrate the joy of live music.”
Coming to a Cushion Concert costs $5 and can be purchased from The Capital Box Office.
Cushion Concerts are held monthly, feature a range of musical genres and cost $5. You can book tickets at gotix.com.au.
