A star-studded line up will support the Sing for a Cure variety concert being performed at the Redland Performing Arts Centre at 7.30pm on September 14.
The show is being staged as a fundraiser for prostate cancer during Prostate Cancer Awareness month and supports the work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
The brainchild of Jonathon Welch AM, the show was inspired by his personal and recent prostate cancer journey.
Mr Welch said he was honoured to have the support of so many artists.
“These great artists and organisations didn’t hesitate when I asked them if they’d like to be involved,” he said.
Artists include 2016 The Voice finalist Ellen Reed, internationally acclaimed performer and puppeteer David Hamilton Marionettes, internationally renowned opera and music theatre soprano Rosemarie Arthars, Ormiston College’s winning male vocal ensemble The Redbacks and concert pianist Elijah Coombes.
Jonathan said the concert also showcased more than 150 voices as part of the Redland Play It Forward choir programs, Men Aloud, Only Women Aloud and the School of Hard Knocks choirs, all accompanied by Maree Hall. Joining these choirs is Men Aloud Brisbane.
Emcee for the event is Bay FM’s Tony Tranter.
“We hope to spread awareness about prostate cancer – the most diagnosed of all cancers now in Australia.”
Tickets are $39/$35, $28 and $23.
