SUNSHINE Statesmen will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast with an original song to be performed at a concert on Saturday, August 12.
The song has been written specially for the milestone.
Performing on the same program will be Blindside – an outstanding young Brisbane quartet, founded in 2013, and the Pan Pacific Youth Barbershop Quartet Champion in 2014.
The lads recently took out third in the international youth quartet competition in July in Las Vegas.
The night also boasts Vivace – a string ensemble of 12 players from Immanuel College in Buderim, and the Ken O’Flaherty’s McGuinness Irish Trio performing mainly Irish country songs.
The Global Harmonies Community Choir will sing from its repertoire that comprises a variety of styles of music from English, African, Jewish and French to Yiddish and Native American gospel and traditional songs, and the Sunshine Coast Grammar School brass quartet will also be performing.
The concert will be held at 7pm at the Buderim War Memorial Hall (cnr Main St and Gloucester Rd, Buderim).
Admission will be $25 and under 18s $15 including a light supper will be provided.
