Three fabulous a’Cappella groups
The Buds Youth a’Cappella Choir is made up of passionate and talented young
people between 11 and 31 years old who work together to create beautiful
music under the expert direction of Jessica Joan Graham. They perform
challenging polyphonic versions of songs from a wide range of genres.
Platinum Quartet, formed in 2012, is a superb female barbershop quartet,
made up of four members from the a’cappella chorus Vocal Vibes, Alison
Brown (Tenor), Debbie Neilsen (Lead), Margot Thorne (Bass) and Kerry Haddow
(Baritone). These ladies are almost obsessive about their singing! Although
they prefer the unique chords and tuning of the Barbershop style, they also
enjoy singing the odd song from other genres as well.
Shift the Table was formed over 20 years ago by neighbours in Lingwell Rd.,
East Hawthorn. It is a vibrant community choir with a diverse and exciting
repertoire, led by the effervescent Flip Case. Through their singing, STT
have helped raise funds for the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre, Pancare,
Pink Ribbon Day and Grief Line.They are committed to using their love of
singing to benefit those in need and to bring joy, peace, humour and
harmony to our Community.
Due to limited time and popularity the Stage Manager cannot guarantee a slot
to all aspiring open stage performers so it is best to arrive well before a
concert starts to be in the running for a slot. The Stage Manager may give
preference to acts that did not appear the previous month. Time is limited
to 8 minutes total stage time and all performances are un-plugged, that is
no mics or amps. Acts pay normal admission and need to have good audience
rapport and ability in order to add value to a concert.
If a support act is scheduled they are generally allocated 25 minutes.
Supports acts are paid a set fee and we can help sell your CDs and promote your
