I am a mum of two and Primary School teacher whose aim is to never be home during the midday movie. I believe that I am only ever a car trip away from an adventure.
Bringing Classic Music to the Bay
If you are looking for a little culture and a lot of style to amp up your weekend, why not surround yourself with beautiful music and classic tunes performed professionally by a cast of talented and local Bayside musicians? Set inside one of Brightons most popular churches, St.Leonard's Uniting, this will be the debut concert for the Bayside Chamber Orchestra.

The B.C.O consists of a number of music students and professional and amateurs musicians. It was primarily set up to give these creative souls a chance to share and celebrate their talents with the local community. It also gives them the opportunity to do what they love in between family and work commitments and working within other orchestras, live theatre shows and other performances.

The map is wrong and has Wolseley Grove, Geelong as its reference. Please note that it's in the Melbourne suburb of Brighton.
