Kalamunda Reporter - - Front Page -

SEA shanties and gospel mu­sic will re­ver­ber­ate through the historic cen­tre of Guild­ford when the town’s in­au­gu­ral sing­ing fes­ti­val hits the streets next month.

Guild­ford As­so­ci­a­tion trea­surer com­mit­tee mem­ber Yvonne Hen­der­son said the Guild­ford Songfest would fea­ture 28 choirs and sing­ing acts across the week­end.

“The Guild­ford Songfest will bring the joy of sing­ing to vis­i­tors and the lo­cal com­mu­nity with con­certs and work­shops to be held in the town’s historic public build­ings and churches,” she said.

“Against the back­drop of the 1829 set­tle­ment town’s pic­turesque her­itage build­ings and streetscapes, a wide va­ri­ety of choirs will sing every­thing from sea shanties to bar­ber­shop songs, gospel and con­tem­po­rary pop.

“The fes­ti­val will fea­ture a mar­quee con­cert in Stir­ling Square on Sun­day, along­side the reg­u­lar mar­ket.”

Ms Hen­der­son said en­try to all con­certs and work­shops were free thanks to the sup­port of the City of Swan, Lot­tery­west and Perth Air­port.
