Popular twilight concerts return to Vic Park
Published on 08 October 2021
The popular Twilight Trio concert series returns to Victoria Park this spring with three dedicated evenings of free live music and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.
Featuring three different musical themes, including Latin jazz, 60s inspired retro rhythms and Aboriginal dance and music, the Twilight Trio concerts are a perfect night out to bring family and friends together and enjoy an evening of music at one of the Town’s local parks.
Town of Victoria Park Mayor Karen Vernon said the Twilight Trio concerts are a local favourite and a highlight of the Town’s event calendar.
“We’ve been hosting the Twilight Trio concerts for 19 years now and our residents have told us that music and local events are important to them and help create a connected community to feel proud of.
“The Twilight Trio concerts are a perfect way to enjoy our beautiful parklands, celebrate local music and showcase the Vic Park community,” said Mayor Vernon.
