Here’s an excellent way to have some fun and do some good at the same time-The Redland City Bands’ drought relief concert being held at Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC) next Friday 19 October.
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams says Council was pleased to support the event, which would help raise funds and awareness for farmers suffering the devastating impacts of the prolonged drought.
“With our rich agricultural heritage, many Redland Coasts locals – myself included – have an affinity with the farming community.”
“This concert is a tangible way we can help, with all proceeds going to Drought Angels.”
“Redlanders are known for their generosity and I thank Redland City Bands – and in particular conductor Peter Francis – for taking the initiative to put on such as event, which Redland City Council and RPAC are proud to support.”
“I encourage everyone to come along on the night, you will not only enjoy the entertainment but equally you will be making a real difference.”
Redland City Bands conductor Peter Francis says the concert would feature some great music in support of a great cause.
“Every now and then a situation moves you… and this is one of those times. I found myself in a position of being able to help and surrounded by likeminded musicians willing to give freely of their time and talents.”
“Our big band and three concert bands will perform a variety of numbers, including the 1812 Overture, You’re the Voice, Carnival of Venice and selections from Mary Poppins and The Blues Brothers, to name a few.”
The Entertainment and a sausage sizzle will start at 6.30pm, followed by the concert at 7.30pm.
Tickets are $15 for children and $25 for adults and can be booked in person from the RPAC Box Office (2-16 Middle St, Cleveland) or online at https://tickets.rpac.com.au. Transaction fees apply.
