Kangara Waters Retirement Village has been the focus of a series of concerts for over two years now. Two residents, both accomplished musicians, set up the concert series to bring quality musical performance to those living in the village, and to the general community.
These concerts have featured some of the best-known professional musicians based in Canberra, as well as offering performance opportunity to graduate students. The audiences have grown in numbers, often to capacity, and include music-lovers of all ages from all over Canberra, as well as the village residents.
Sadly both Noelene Akeroyd and John Bonnett passed away in 2016. In memory of their dedication, and to maintain their legacy, the Kangara Concert Series continues in 2017 with six concerts through the year. They’ll feature a lineup of highly talented musicians, from a jazz trio to a harp duo, singers, virtuoso pianists and lots in between.
The first concert is on Sunday March 26 at 2.15pm. It features mezzo-soprano chanteuse Bron Riley accompanied by pianist Colin Forbes. They will perform French love songs, including ‘Les Chemins de L’Amour’, (the pathways of love) giving the concert its title.
All are welcome, and there is a chance to mingle after the concert over afternoon tea provided by the Birrigai Café.
