Serenata Singers Gala Concert to honour Armistice
THIS year's Serenata Singers Annual Gala Concert is titled "Memories - Popular and Patriotic" and will include a commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. The annual event presented by the community choir in conjunction with the Ashgrove/The Gap Lions Club is always a highlight of the choir's year, but this year's program will be staged in conjunction with Voices of Remembrance, a statewide choral program that encourages communities across Queensland to commemorate the centenary of the signing of the Armistice through music.
The program will include a number of popular songs, old and not so old, and feature some talented guest artists. Many of the songs will have a tie-in with the commemoration. The choir is particularly pleased about the participation of the Australian Army Band Woodwind Quintet.
The Serenata Singers is a community choir based in The Gap. It rehearses on Monday evenings at The Gap Uniting Church and performs approximately twice a month, usually at retirement centres. New members are always welcome.
"Memories - Popular and Patriotic" will be performed at 7:30pm, Saturday, 3 November 2018, in the Uniting Church Auditorium, 1050 Waterworks Road, The Gap. Tickets are available at the door: Adults $20; Children $10. A supper will be provided. A portion of the proceeds from the concert will go towards Lions Medical Research programs.
