Over 250 vocalists from choral groups around the Sunshine Coast are gathering with some of our leading soloists to voice their demand for action on climate change. The Love song to the Earth concert will be held at Lake Kawana Community Centre (Venue 114) at 7:30pm on the 30th March.
This one-off musical event has been inspired by Sunshine Coast Climate Action Now, a local group founded by retired opera singer Mr Denis White, who believes the arts are a positive way to convey the urgent message we need action on global warming.
“Using music to bring people together is a natural way to remind us of the amazing community we live in and what’s at risk if governments don’t seriously respond to climate change” said Mr White.
“Funds raised will be donated to Farmers for Climate Action who are an Australia wide group and directed to Queensland farmers who are obviously feeling the impact of climate change with extreme weather events, including record flooding” said Mr White.
Gubbi Gubbi man Brent Millar will open the musical showcase with a Welcome to Country followed by soloists and award-winning local choirs Sweet Chilli, New World Rhythm, Inspirations, Insingc, Mouth Orchestra, The Statesmen’s Barbershop Chorus and more.
Although the musical extravaganza will cover a broad range of musical styles and tastes, when it comes to climate action, performers will sing from the same song sheet as all 250 voices combine for a mass choir performance of the iconic We are the World.
The Love Song to the Earth concert will also include a youth choir drawn from local school students keen to stand up for climate.
This event is proudly supported by Sunshine Coast Environment Council and Sunshine Coast Council. To check out the full program and book tickets please go to: www.venue114.com.au Phone number 07 54131400.
