Nambour Chorale Society presents their yearly Fred Hollows Foundation Benefit Concert, "Showtime", at the Uniting Church Hall in Nambour on Sunday, 24th July from 2pm. The choir will perform a collection of tunes from popular musicals, including "My Fair Lady", "Miss Saigon" and a selection from the ever-popular work of Andrew Lloyd-Weber.
"Showtime" will also feature two guest artists, Dominique Fegan and Zac Ansley. Dominique is a classically-trained singer who grew up on the Sunshine Coast and has just returned to Australia after a series of performances in England. Her most recent and much-acclaimed role was the lead in La Traviata. Zac Ansley is a local lad who played the lead in Immanuel Lutheran College's production of "Oliver!" and featured as a solo artist in the recent "Sunshine Coast Show Arena Spectacular". Both artists have generously donated their time and talent to help the Nambour Chorale Society raise money for the Fred Hollows Foundation.
So, for a mere $6, you will enjoy an great afternoon of toe-tapping show-tunes, a scrumptious spread at afternoon tea - and be helping to "eradicate avoidable blindness in developing countries" at the same time!

DOMINIQUE FEGAN (soprano) began her singing studies at a very early age as she had the (mis)fortune to have been born the youngest child of a singing teacher! In 1986 she won a coveted place to study drama with the Royal Queensland Youth Theatre and went on to perform with operatic societies in and around Brisbane.
Principal roles include Anna The Merry Widow, Casilda The Gondoliers, Josephine HMS Pinafore, The Plaintiff Trial by Jury, Phyllis Iolanthe, Angela Patience, Guenevere Camelot, Maisie The Boyfriend, and Hugette The Vagabond King. From 1995 to 1999 she was a chorus member of Opera Queensland. With OQ she sang in Parsifal, Turandot, La Boheme, Die Tote Stadt, Faust, La Traviata and Madama Butterfly to name a few.
In 2000 she made her debut as the Female Chorus in The Rape of Lucretia before moving to the UK, where she sang the title role of Tosca and Violetta in La Traviata with Park Opera, for which she received critical acclaim. She then went on to tour with Candlelight Opera performing the role of Musetta in La Boheme and shortly before her return home to Australia, sang Soprano 2 in Mozart's C Minor Mass with the Royal Free Singers at Eton College.
