Music helps float boats
Orchestral music and community development go hand in hand when the Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra presents a concert of light classical music to raise funds to benefit the Caloundra Australian Volunteer Coast Guard. The benefit concert is an initiative of the Caloundra Community BankŪ, seeking to support its local community.
In proposing the concert, the bank has 'orchestrated' an event that supports the activities of both organizations, and so, the 'colour' that they give to the community's cultural life - boating and live music. Here, 'outdoors' and 'indoors' become one. Proceeds will assist the Coast Guard to build a pontoon to shorten their response time to service calls.
The Orchestra, conducted by Adrian King, will perform works of Dvorak, Coates, Wagner, Webber, Strauss and others. The concert will be staged at Caloundra's Events Centre, Sunday the 21st April, 2 pm. During intermission, light refreshment will be available from the Events Centre's kiosk.
Ticket prices are $33 at the door, $28 pre-booked/pre-purchased, $25 each for groups of 10 or more.
Tickets can be purchased in person from the Caloundra Community BankŪ, the Events Centre at Caloundra, and the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Caloundra. Tickets may also be pre-booked by phoning 07 54455123. For more information please visit the website.
