Budding musicians to share afternoon of music

ENJOY an afternoon of music as the South Burnett's first young orchestra shows how far they have come in a year.

The South Burnett Community Young Orchestra will play a selection of songs at a free community concert this Saturday, October 26.

Listen to movie themes and other well-known pieces performed by the young musicians from 3pm at the Kingaroy Town Hall.

The orchestra, also known as SBC-YO, was started up the South Burnett Community Orchestra earlier this year to help musicians "young in skill" flourish.

 

SBC-YO members Emily Haak and Adeline Smith are ready to play at the community concert on Saturday, October 26.

Orchestra events co-ordinator Caz Dingle said the concert would show what the musicians worked on at the SBC-YO's last workshop.

"Come and see what our young orchestra, of all ages, and their mentors have been working on this year," she said.

"After the short concert we'll gather for a chat and a sausage sizzle in the forecourt, hosted by the Kingaroy Lions."

The doors will open at 2.30pm on Saturday for a 3pm start.

There will be a small cost for food and drinks.
