The Broken Hill Philharmonic Choir’s next concert is a special one for mum.

“To Mother With Love” will be presented at 2pm on Sunday at the Musicians’ Club Auditorium.

The concert will feature songs not just around the theme of mothers, but also some musical comedy songs from “South Pacific” and the “Sound of Music” and a bracket of famous lullabies. 

The audience can also look forward to solos by choir members, Diane Cotterill, Sandra Gordon-Smith, and June-Marie Bennett, and a duet by Vicki Armstrong and Shelley Forrest, in addition to some semi-comedic items from the ladies and men of the choir.

Featured Guest Artists include the Expression Glee Ensemble, Abbey Kelly, and local singer Rebecca McInnes.

Ms McInnes has been on the local music scene for many years. She joined the local pipe band at the age of seven and sang in the North School Choir, Willyama High School Choir and the Outback Oz Ensemble Choir. 

In 2017 she was struck by illness struck she feared she would not sing again. After 12 months or so of rehabilitation she found her voice and has been back delighting audiences once again as she will on Sunday, when she will perform songs made famous by Dolly Parton, Ronan Keating and LeeAnne Womack.

The choir is looking forward to presenting a great afternoon of music for their loyal audience and welcomes all newcomers.

So why not make an afternoon of it, have lunch at the Musicians’ Club (don’t forget to book) and then follow it  up with the concert tickets are available at the door.
