A fundraising concert at Langley Estate in White Hills will support local performing arts projects next year.
The concert will go ahead on Saturday, December 4, from 3pm, and the Ulumbarra Foundation event will raise funds for 2022's Power-Up Grant program.
Since beginning four years ago the grants program has provided almost $50,000 to Bendigo-based arts projects.
Ulumbarra Foundation executive officer David Stretch said it was exciting to be able to host live events again.
"The event at Langley Estate on the weekend is not only fortunate because we can gather at something like this but it is also a terrific fundraiser for an important cause," he said.
"(The Power-Up Grants) give the Ulumbarra Foundation the ability to increase the level of disbursement and grants to the performing arts community."
Mr Stretch said creative people had been busy during the pandemic with this year's grants program attracting six applications.
"We do two funding rounds each year and already have interest in the 2022 rounds," he said. "We know there is an increase local arts organisations looking for more support and (the grants program) is about supporting new initiatives and expanding the capacity of those projects."
Husband and wife duo Slava and Sharon Grigoryan will perform at the Langley Estate chapel, which has recently been converted to a performance space.
"Slava is one of the best classical guitarists in the country and his wife is a cellist of great repute," Mr Stretch said. "Together they are performing an interest repertoire of modern and classical numbers.
"It will be an intimate performance that is capped at 80 people.
"It is the first performance at Langley Estate who have converted and refurbished the chapel and are looking to host regular events in it."
