National singing phenomenon to hit Warwick in the new year
THIS is a shout out to all the amateur singers who were denied their musical dreams, to those that restrict their rocking out to the shower or the car, to those that long for the limelight but will never come close.
The Pub Choir is coming to Warwick Town Hall.
The national phenomenon invites the audience to partake in a raucous sing-along en masse. No matter how talented or trained you are, all are invited.
The session was arranged by the Warwick Chamber of Commerce to raise money for cancer research.
Chamber president Julia Keogh and her mate Lou Keevers contacted the choir earlier this year and secured funding from Condamine Headwaters Landcare.
"A couple of mutual friends have been diagnosed in recent weeks and months and it's something that touches everyone," she said.
"We thought that it would be a nice way to bring the community together."
The Landcare grant will cover the hire cost for the Pub Choir facilitators so any money raised from ticket sales will be donated to the McGrath Foundation, Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and Drought Relief.
Ms Keogh has collect a swag of donations from local businesses that will be raffled on the night.
A small eat street market will also be held in the alley between the Town Hall and Suncorp Bank, with numerous vendors including 4 Stagioni Mobile Pizza and the Little Gallery Café.
"They are going to provide some really cool pub style food and we'll have two bars running inside and out of the hall," she said.
The Pub Choir will perform at 6pm on January 19.
