Opera by the lake for locals
THE sensational vocals of Opera-Q echoed across Lake Redbrook for a second year as part of the annual Childers Festival.
Hosts and owners of Lake Redbrook Holiday Retreat Gary and Sharyn Walters agreed they were excited when approached to host the event.
“We were thrilled to have the opportunity to host the event. It’s the second year the opera has participated in the festival,” Mrs Walters said.
With just short of 200 patrons in attendance, the numbers had increased from last year by almost 50 people.
“We had plenty of positive feedback and visitors inquired within minutes of the final act if the event will be on next year,” she said.
“The lake is a perfect location and musicians and singers enjoy the unique location for a performance.”
Guests were treated to the delicious wines by Hill of Promise, with owners and producers providing the personal touch of class to the opera. The retreat owners are renowned for hosting talented singers and musicians.
“It was only a few weeks ago when we had the ukulele club here,” Mrs Walters said.
The music attracted interest from other holiday-makers, turning the retreat into a private concert.
“It was a perfect day and it was a pleasure to host Opera-Q,” she said.
