Teenage crooner Dylan McLachlan's dulcet tones will be showcased when he hits the Civic Centre stage for the NSW Seniors' Week Variety Concert on Monday.
The 15-year-old is among a variety of acts that include music students, choirs, line dancers, comedians and dancers.
"He sings songs that the crowd knows from Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble," co-ordinator June Marie Bennett says.
"They are evergreen ballad songs and they'll love him."
'Fly Me to the Moon', 'Cry Me a River' and 'Summer Wind' are among the songs Dylan will perform and the general public is also invited to attend.
"It's a highlight for the seniors from the nursing homes and I'm sure the nurses and carers enjoy it just as much," Mrs Bennett said.
She said that the concerts were always popular and that this year's lineup would be hard to top, although ex-councillor John Groenendijk's Elvis
impersonation was a loss to the show.
Don Mudie will fill his place as the baritone singer in his first stage performance for some time.
Mayor Wincen Cuy will open the concert at 1pm.
Admission is free and the show is expected to finish about 3.30pm.
