I'm a mother of four with two coeliac children. I'm always on the lookout for great gluten-free spots around Brisbane and feature gluten-free cooking in my blog: coeliacfamily.blogspot.com.au
I'm also a muso and enjoy live music around town.
It is not often that Brisbane gets a taste of British culture and class, but on Saturday 5th June at the Redlands Performing Arts Centre and in the Conservatorium Theatre an Sunday 6 June, Brisbane audiences are in for a real treat: The King's Singers from Cambridge are coming to town. World renowned for their vocal mastery and rich harmonies, these men will get your spine tingling with their latest offering entitled, "The Great American Song Book". the group will delight, not only with their music, but their classic British wit, performing music by Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, Irving Berlin, Gershwin and more.
Music presented will be from their new Album
The group was established in 1968, when the original six members met in the King's College Chapel to sing while studying for their degrees. The group sang anything which could be sung in six parts, from madrigals through to popular songs, and soon found themselves with a busy schedule of concerts to perform at. Since those early days the group have grown in popularity and have made appearances across the world. The have a large library of recordings and run regular workshops. While in Brisbane they will work with the choirs and students from Vocal Manoeuvers.
