A collage of famous heroes and villains


Join with the South Burnett Community Orchestra for our annual end of year concert on 7th December.  Previously this concert has been performed at Kumbia Memorial School of Arts Hall but the orchestra has grown a little large for this venue!  This year, we will present an exciting, family friendly concert at the Kingaroy Town Hall. Doors open at 5pm for a 5.30pm start.  You'll hear some familiar and new music based on our theme for 2019 - Heroes and Villains.  The SBCO singers will also be joining us. 

There will be heaps of chairs, or bring a rug and sit at the front if you have little ones. 

The concert is free - all welcome! 

You have the option to join us for BBQ dinner at interval.  Includes sausage or steak burger, salads, dessert, punch, tea & coffee.  Adults $15, Child 12 & under $10.  Meal vouchers must be pre-purchased by Wednesday 4th December.  You can book online at www.trybooking.com/BGIIU, or get meal tickets in person from Kingaroy Office Central on Haly st.

Alternately, you are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in the Town Hall forecourt during interval.
