What is Chisholm St?
Chisholm St emerged from the 2020 Victorian lockdown as a venture to support local musicians. It provides a paid opportunity for performers to share their craft in a supportive space. Each concert series offers up to four repeat sessions over two days and is a rare developmental opportunity for any performer. Pandemic permitting, Chisholm St will host six one-hour concert programs in 2022, commencing in April.
