Live music returns to the Civic Theatre | 7–24 Nov

Music lovers listen up… live gigs are back at Civic Theatre, launching in time for Australian Music Month this November.

Lime Cordiale kicked off the program on Friday 6 November, with a sold out performance as part of Great Southern Nights – a live music industry initiative with 1,000 COVID Safe gigs happening across Sydney and Regional NSW.

Newcastle’s iconic Civic Theatre is a key touring venue and will be hosting an eclectic series of gigs across the Theatre, Playhouse, and City Hall from 7 – 24 November.

Newcastle is a key stop on the 1000-gig Great Southern Nights initiative with three venues hosting brilliant performances, from award-winning vocalist Emma Pask who will delight as she interweaves storytelling through timeless swinging jazz standards, upbeat Latin rhythms, tender ballads, and some raucous blues.

On Saturday 5 December brilliant bass-baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes and internationally acclaimed flutist Jane Rutter will come together for a sublime concert of love and romance. Be taken to new heights with the passion of Operatic Italy to the Classica Perfection of Handel, Mozart (The Magic Flute), Donizetti, and Schubert.
