Singers and volunteers wanted - Armistice Centenary Concert

The SBCO, with special guests, will present an evening of live music and ceremony to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice - the end of World War One.  Held on Saturday the 10th November 2018, the night before Remembrance Day in the Kingaroy Town Hall, this will be a unique cultural response to the Centenary, including some military ceremony, memorabilia, artwork, the South Burnett Community Orchestra presenting an almost completely new musical program and a combined choir.  The String Ensemble will also perform new repertoire and a 3 course meal will be served.  We plan to raise money to donate to Legacy.  We are pleased to be supported by the Queensland Government, South Burnett Regional Council, Kingaroy RSL sub-branch, Hancock Prospecting, Bill Hull Car Centre, Woolworths, Riverina Stockfeed and other local organisations. 

We need you!  

We will be bringing together a joint choir of students and adults led by Jane Izslaub, and rehearsal dates are listed in the poster below.  We may also be organising some afternoon or evening rehearsals. 

We are also calling for general volunteers to help with organising the event beforehand, to help the publicity and ticket sales, to help on the night itself.  Please contact Jane Kennedy or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

We always welcome both adult and student musicians to become new members of the orchestra. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings during school terms, and hold weekend workshops (see poster below).
