Arts coun­cil seeks com­mu­nity sup­port

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT - – HE­LEN MOR­RIS

THE long­stand­ing Gayndah Arts Coun­cil, af­fil­i­ated with broader Queens­land Arts Coun­cil/Arts Link, needs some sup­port from for­mer and hope­fully new mem­bers to re­main vi­able.

While no longer able to bring tour­ing per­form­ers to town as in for­mer days, our cur­rent Arts Coun­cil con­tin­ues to make a worth­while con­tri­bu­tion to Gayndah and the wider com­mu­nity.

An on­go­ing role of the Coun­cil is to pro­vide the re­quired funds to keep the Gayndah Choir go­ing, and over­see its ac­tiv­i­ties.

In the last 12 months the choir has been busy with a suc­cess­ful "Christ­mas in July" con­cert and an out­doors event, "Mu­sic un­der the Trees", cel­e­brat­ing the 25th birth­day of the Les Baker Bridge over the Bur­nett in Gayndah. De­cem­ber found the choir do­ing per­for­mances of Christ­mas mu­sic at Gayndah and Bin­jour. Gayndah's cur­rent Musicom pro­duc­tion, "The Three Mus­ke­teers", in­volv­ing both Bur­nett State Col­lege and com­mu­nity mem­bers, is pro­gress­ing un­der the um­brella of the lo­cal Arts Coun­cil.

Its ad­min­is­tra­tion be­ing the re­spon­si­bil­ity of a sub­com­mit­tee of that Coun­cil.

Our choir mem­bers are en­joy­ing learn­ing the songs for this pro­duc­tion, and are look­ing for­ward to be­ing part of the per­for­mances in the first week of June.

The Arts Coun­cil's next meet­ing will be on the 26th July.
