Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

WA Academy of Per­form­ing Arts (WAAPA) stu­dents Ge­or­gia Mered­ith (20) and Kieren Park (19) will com­bine their mu­si­cal tal­ents for this year’s Christ­mas in July fundraiser in Scar­bor­ough.

The duo will play a va­ri­ety of con­tem­po­rary songs as well as some jazz with Ge­or­gia on vo­cals and Kieren play­ing the guitar.

“We like to play songs peo­ple can sing along to and re­late to,” Ge­or­gia said.

The Church­lands res­i­dent is do­ing her hon­ours this year af­ter com­plet­ing her Bach­e­lor of Jazz Per­for­mance at WAAPA last year.

Kieran, of Bassendean, is in his sec­ond year of the Bach­e­lor de­gree.

Di Watts and Jan Pet­torino are again or­gan­is­ing the an­nual fundrais­ing event with part pro­ceeds go­ing to the Royal WA His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety of WA in Ned­lands.

Ge­or­gia said her fam­ily had been friends with Di for years and she had sup­ported sev­eral of her char­ity events.

“I’ve fol­lowed the char­ity work she does, it’s amaz­ing,” Ge­or­gia said.

“She’s al­ways been very sup­port­ive of my mu­sic.”

Ge­or­gia is also part of an all-girl band The Birds, which has a gig at the Su­bi­aco Arts Cen­tre on July 31.

The singer said she hoped to stay in Perth when she fin­ished her Hon­ours at the end of the year but even­tu­ally wanted to go to Canada or Lon­don and con­tinue her stud­ies there.
