Char­ity event for Starlight

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick News -

AN ar­ray of opera singers will per­form to raise money for Starlight Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion and can­cer sur­vivor Karen Van Den Hooven in Mos­man Park this Sun­day.

Ms Van Den Hooven was di­ag­nosed with can­cer early this year and is now un­der­go­ing an in­ten­sive course of chemo­ther­apy.

So­prano Har­riet O'Shan­nessy said the idea was formed in the dress­ing room of the WA Opera Com­pany and her col­leagues were happy to help Ms Van Den Hooven, who is her sis­ter-in-law.

“As a re­sult we have no less than six stun­ning so­pra­nos in the line up, as well as an amaz­ingly tal­ented mezzo so­prano,” Ms O'Shan­nessy said.

“We also have Caro­line Bad­nall as our pi­anist which is a real treat.”

The event will be held at St Luke's church in Mos­man Park on Septem­ber 20, fol­lowed by a supper in the Church hall. For tick­ets visit www.try­book­ jz.
