Anzac Centennial Commemoration Concert PDF Print E-mail

Roseneath School Hall, Thursday 23 April, 7:30 pm

As our regular monthly concert for April falls just two days before Anzac Day, we are having an Anzac Centennial Commemoration. It will be a black-board style concert, open to anyone who would like to perform, and of course those who would like to listen.   

It's a chance to roll out and re-visit songs from the vast collection of music about war, and peace, that forms a major part of the great folk library - or indeed to add your own original material.

You will be able to do one or two songs, depending on the turnout. They can be songs about war, conflict or peace, from any era up to the present day - in other words, not restricted to 1914-18. 

If you are keen to perform at this event, you can email the address below, or turn up on the night.

(Note that as Eric Bogle has made such a memorable and popular contribution on the Anzac subject, we may be moved to do a mass version of 'And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda' on the night.)
