Forster Library will come alive on Saturday, July 28 as local singing group, Company of Voices returns for its 14th annual library performance.
Back by popular demand, this year’s concert will be music to the ears of the Forster community, covering genres ranging from early Renaissance, to classical Bach and Mozart, upbeat jazz and contemporary songs.
Complemented by a delicious afternoon tea hosted by the friends of the library, this is an event you won’t want to miss.
The concert, titled “Off the Shelf” will also acknowledge the centenary of the end of WW1, featuring songs dedicated to those who served or lost their lives at war.
Also new for the upcoming performance is the addition of guitarist Brian Saxby, whose creative expertise will add a lively backdrop.
“We’re thrilled to again welcome Company of Voices into the Forster Library”, MidCoast Council’s manager of libraries, Chris Jones said.
“Recognising our servicemen and women in this year’s concert adds a new and significant aspect to what we’re sure will be another stellar performance.”
Company of Voices, founded in 1995 by Director Leigh Vaughan, is a group of 22 friends who enjoy singing together while raising money for local charities. They are well-known for their extensive range of choral music, and their contribution to the local community.
“We always love singing in the library,” Company of Voices director, Leigh Vaughan said.
“Not only are the friends of the library an amazing group of supporters, we are always met with a welcoming ambiance and an enthusiastic audience.”
The performance will run from 3pm-5pm , with tickets for sale, $15 each, including the concert and afternoon tea.
