Glee Club concerts this week
The Pearl Beach Glee Club Singers and Friends will present their latest concert, A Time to Remember, this week.
The Glee Club will hold two concerts at the Pearl Beach Memorial Hall, at 7:30pm on August 23 and at 2:30pm on August 24.
The concerts will be a celebration of the Pearl Beach Progress Association's 90th anniversary.
"Throughout 2019, the Association has organised a calendar of events in Pearl Beach to celebrate the people, achievements and traditions that have made such a significant contribution to our 90 year history and to the suburb," said Association communications officer Ms Lynne Lillico.
Ms Lillico said the original Pearl Beach Glee Club was formed in the 1950s to raise funds to complete the Pearl Beach Memorial Hall.
They put on a number of grand concerts before being reformed as the Glee Club Singers in 2010 by a group of local music lovers to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the original Glee Club.
"The success of the anniversary concert encouraged the tradition to continue and each year members have maintained the pleasure of regular meetings around the piano," Ms Lillico said.
"Building upon this tradition, this year's program will surprise and delight with a great variety of local talent performed by extraordinary musicians; young and old, amateur and professional.
"The audience will be invited to join in with some catchy sing-alongs and enjoy a number of funny skits," Ms Lillico said.
Local talent to feature in this year's concerts are Michaele Archer, Anita de Lisen and Michael James, with radio personalities and theatre buffs Chris King and Scott Levi.
The 2018 Pearl Beach Music Scholarship awardee Aaron Carey is also set to perform.
Dr John Irvine will be the Master of Ceremonies.
