Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park’s Mu­sic by Moon­light con­cert turns 10 this year and to cel­e­brate its suc­cess the event will host Abil­ity Idol, a singing com­pe­ti­tion open to chil­dren of all abil­i­ties, as its pre-show en­ter­tain­ment.

The event will take place at the Burswood Park Fore­shore on March 12 from 5.30pm with an ar­ray of tal­ent tak­ing the stage.

Once the win­ner has been crowned, the au­di­ence will be en­ter­tained by lo­cal duo Ka­boom Per­cus­sion be­fore the WA Youth Orches­tra (WAYO) take the stage at 7pm.

Ka­boom Per­cus­sion is made up of Cather­ine Betts and Joshua Web­ster, both free­lance per­cus­sion­ists who have been work­ing to­gether for the past decade.

Their YouTube chan­nel has re­ceived over 20 mil­lion gen­uine views, so the au­di­ence is in for a real treat.

To cel­e­brate its 10 years play­ing at Mu­sic by Moon­light, WAYO will per­form crowd favourites from block­buster movies around the world.

This year, a dif­fer­ent ap­proach has been taken by the Town of Vic­to­ria Park and WA Youth Orches­tra, with the au­di­ence be­ing able to choose from a list of songs they would like played on the evening through a Face­book sur­vey.

Mayor Trevor Vaughan said he thought this was a great way for the au­di­ence to feel in­volved in the evening.

“The WA Youth Orches­tra has given us a list of eight songs for our au­di­ence to choose from, and they will choose five from the list to per­form on the evening,” he said.
