Live Music | Up Close

Taking chamber music back to its roots, the ASQ’s hour-long Close Quarters concerts are performed in unique and interesting spaces all around Australia and last around 60 minutes in length. They are casual and tickets cost roughly the same as a night at the flicks. Close Quarters concerts provide the flexibility for music-lovers of all kinds to include an exquisite experience into their night-time activities. Close Quarters also often feature collaborations with local artists and businesses.

Close Quarters are announced here on the ASQ’s website, Facebook and in its Enews. Seating is strictly limited and events usually sell out. Sign up to our enews for the next ASQ Close Quarters announcements.

“We want to recreate what chamber music used to be – a group of people in a lounge room performing, listening to, discussing and enjoying music in a totally unselfconscious way. Somewhere along the line, large concert halls and the ‘concert etiquette’ that accompanied them removed the vital element of the audience in performance. As performers, we thrive off the energy we feel from the audience. It’s a two-way exchange.” says ASQ violinist Francesca Hiew.
