“ ....Recently I was privileged to be part of the inspired audiences enjoying two memorable concerts performed by the Janet Seidel Trio. The group are regular visitors to Melbourne and country Victoria, however, this time performing their first shows in the superb surroundings and acoustics of the Melbourne Recital Centre Salon where the band were very pleased to find the a perfect performing space and were clearly thrilled with the entire experience.

Last Sat saw the Janet Seidel Trio in the Salon at the Melbourne Recital Centre. Fab concert and venue! Tables, candles, stage close-up, intimate yet great acoustics. Terrific performance, with great variety - very sorry when it ended. Deb
