The AGM, held at Shannon’s Gallery, is a social event celebrating the arts in Apollo Bay. A prompt meeting is followed by a performance from a local solo musician or group. In 2010 we were captivated by the fresh young voice of emerging Apollo Bay talent, Katie Maxwell. Katie has won song writing and young performer competitions and has already recorded her first CD, available from Apollo Bay Post Office.
