The Redland Rhapsody chorus joins with four other Sweet Adeline choruses in a concert entitled Dazzling Harmonies supporting women’s cancer research being staged at the Wynnum Baptist church from 2pm to 4pm on October 28.
On the bill is Hot Ginger from the Sunshine coast, Bella A’Cappella from Mount Tamborine and Blue Sky Harmony and Brisbane City Sounds choruses.
The groups will sing their own repertoire and combine with a choir of about 100 voices for the finale.
Organiser Dianne James said she was excited to have the opportunity to sing together and to work towards something broader than usual.
“We have all experienced the loss of life or surviving women’s cancer in the rhapsody chorus. It’s personal to everyone,” she said.
Speaking at the event will be breast cancer survivor and the Silk Rags project founder Dee Handyside.
Dee will speak about what to say and do when a friend or family member receives a cancer diagnosis.
Funds will be given to the Women’s Cancer support Gold Coast. This volunteer group works with women with cancer providing hands on support and equipment loans.
Tickets are $25 and can be booked on redlandrhapsody.org.au.
