Chance to be up close with Noelle and clas­sics

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News - Holly Thomp­son

Bridgetown Ro­tary Club’s Up Close and Clas­si­cal an­nual con­cert will be held in a few weeks to raise money for a new lo­cal drug ac­tion group.

The first con­cert was held in 2006 and it has con­tin­ued to run each year to fundraise for dif­fer­ent com­mu­nity projects run by lo­cal groups.

Bridgetown Ro­tary Club pres­i­dent Lach­lan Stone said the new ac­tion group would help ad­dress an im­por­tant is­sue for the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“It’s a per­va­sive prob­lem in most com­mu­ni­ties but there’s no open con­ver­sa­tion about it,” he said.

“If we can ad­dress is­sues like this in an open fo­rum we can help bet­ter over­come them, rather than ig­nore them.”

This years prin­ci­pal soloist is WAAPA grad­u­ate and piano player Noelle Zhao, who also per­formed at last year’s event.

The con­cert will be held at Bridgetown Reper­tory Theatre on Oc­to­ber 13 at 7.30pm with pre-con­cert drinks at 7pm.

Tick­ets cost $20 for adults and $15 for stu­dents or con­ces­sion and are avail­able at the Bridgetown Com­mu­nity Re­source Cen­tre.
