Laugh for a cause

MORE than 70 powerful voices will resonate through the beautiful Ipswich City Uniting Church tomorrow when the Ipswich Orpheus Chorale performs a Gilbert & Sullivan Extravaganza.

Musical director Tom Keenan said all proceeds from the performance will go towards Ipswich Hospice.

"We've been supporting the hospice for about 10 years now. It's a very worthy cause," he said.

"If people enjoy Gilbert and Sullivan they'll really enjoy the show.

"It's something that you don't get to see live anymore.

"The more people who come to the performance, the more we'll raise for hospice."

The performance will include songs from classic Gilbert and Sullivan musicals such as H.M.S Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance and more.

Mr Keenan said the diverse choir would showcase a wide variety of singers from the ages of 15 to 85.

"It's something everyone can do and we're very fortunate to have such a large membership," he said.

"The acoustics are amazing in the church.

"People can come along and have a bit of a laugh, listen to some lovely music and help raise money for a great cause."

Tickets cost $15 for adults and concession and $10 for children and are available at the door.

A free program is included with a ticket purchase.

Refreshments will also be available for purchase courtesy of the Young Orpheus Singers.

The performance will be held from 2pm tomorrow at Ipswich City Uniting Church located at 27 Ellenborough St, Ipswich.
