“From the moment the host met me till the end, it was profound. I’d read all the information but was still unprepared for what an intense and amazing experience it was.” Listener.

You request a concert date online and receive an email confirming the exact location where you go to (at least 5 minutes before the given time slot). A host* will welcome you there and explain all the important steps, so you can completely immerse yourself in your concert experience. After the host has escorted you to the venue, you will be seated opposite the musician on a chair at a safe distance (at least 2 metres). Your communication with the musician takes place wordlessly, in complete silence. The musician will make eye contact with you and hold it for about 1 minute. This results in a connection unknown to many participants, from which the music grows in harmoniously between the listener and musician. Try to get involved in this contact, which may be unusual at first, because it is from this eye contact that the musician chooses the piece or pieces that best suits this individual encounter.

“An experience of a lifetime” Host, Valetudo Hair and Beauty.

The performed piece is not announced, allowing you to remain completely absorbed in the moment and the music. At the end of the concert, the musician(s) will escort you out and you will receive information from the host(s) about the instrument and artist(s) and the work performed.

“if I had a million dollars, that is what I would give for what I just experienced as that is what it is worth.Listener

“We were fortunate to be able to host the very special “One to One” concerts, performed by a most talented flautist Sally Walker.   The audience is a single person enjoying a dedicated program chosen on the day to fulfill a need perceived by the musician during the first minute of the encounter; a special time to share eye contact and connection. The experience was profound for all of us, enjoyed by the “one person” audience: patients and staff in the clinic on the day. As a team we would love to host further “Concerts for One” events.”   Nineways Chiropractic Clinic

It was magical under the trees looking into the bush on a crisp July evening. So good to have live music, especially 1 to 1.” Listener, Newcastle.

1:1 CONCERTS© in Australia are organised by Sally Walker.
