Special Event

Sounds on the Terrace

Experience the magic of Circular Quay at sunset from the prime vantage point of the MCA Sculpture Terrace this summer. Soak up the afternoon rays and watch the sun slip into the harbour as you listen to the effervescent sounds of up and coming instrumentalists and singer-songwriters. Enjoy great food, wine and other drinks from the MCA Cafe until 9.00pm. Just another reason why the MCA is the place to be on a Thursday night.

Thursday 29 November – Leisure Bandits

This leisurely bunch of banditos are bent on making music for the people. While the rest of Sydney is caught up in the hustle and bustle of city life these kats will help you kick back. Their sound is deeply rooted in the tradition of old school soul and funk while also having elements of contemporary R & B, reggae and hip-hop.
