It will be held tonight (Tues­day) in Mor­well and in­clude lis­ten­ing to mu­sic to be per­formed and light re­fresh­ments.

La­trobe Chorale pres­i­dent Kate Linde said con­cert pian­ist Brian Chap­man of Drouin had of­fered to ac­com­pany the chorale dur­ing re­hearsals and per­for­mances in 2017.

“Brian has been per­form­ing for more than 40 years in Aus­tralia and over­seas,” said Ms Linde. “High­lights of his ca­reer in­clude more than 100 record­ings and broad­casts for the ABC.
