The Impact Community Choir will be delivering a free and inspirational performance at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre on Wednesday 22 May.

The all abilities group are in high demand and have even performed for the Queensland Premier.

Choir director Christie McLucas said the talented group delivered free performances throughout the Wide Bay region.

“We are highly sought after to perform,” Ms McLucas said.

“We often perform in shopping centres and nursing homes.”

She said ‘Melodies at Moncrieff’ was a “brilliant opportunity” for the groups’ members.

From experienced singers to amateurs and support services clients and their support workers, Ms McLucas said anyone could join the community choir.

“When we all combine together we produce a really high quality sound.

“Impact also has music and drama programs and most participants are also involved in the choir.

“The performance is primarily choir focused but we are breaking up some of that with solos.”

With around 60 of the groups’ members performing in the special show Ms McLucas said it was an opportunity to showcase some of the region’s unknown talents.

While she wasn’t giving away any secrets Ms McLucas said attendees could expect “something a little bit special” with one choir member’s solo performance.

“He’s a great singer,” she said.

Attend the event

Melodies at Moncrieff will be held from 10 am on Wednesday 22 May.

It is a free event, running for approximately 60 minutes. No bookings are required.

Ms McLucas said if anyone was interested in joining the choir they could attend a practice session on Wednesdays from 9.30 am to 11 am at Impact Community Services.
