Noosa Council's Creative Noosa team have unleashed this year's residential Music Camp for future 'rock Gods'. The program has attracted a record number of young musicians.
Music Camp commenced Saturday 12th January and is now in full swing with young talent currently being mentored by 12 professional music industry tutors in original songwriting and performance skills.
This labour of love culminates in a public performance - a live rock concert at The House With No Steps on Saturday, 19 January from 4:00pm - 7:00pm. Be there!
Noosa Community Radio will have roving presenters at the concert and will be interviewing performers, mentors and the audience. The concert will be recorded live on the night to feature in later broadcasts on Noosa Community Radio.
"We are inviting young music fans and people interested in the program to Saturday's concert, to 'rock on' with Music Camp graduate bands Zaar, No Problem, Spec2C, and others" says Noosa Council's Music Camp coordinator, Vanessa Doolan.
This will be a drug and alcohol-free event with tickets on sale at the gate, including free sausage-sizzle! Cost: $5 individual, and $12 family rate.
The House With No Steps is off Fellowship Road, Doonan
The event commences at 4:00pm.
