What do you think of when you hear the songs Hakuna Matata, Danger Zone and Let It Go?
If you answered The Lion King, Top Gun and the-never-ending-stuck-in-your-head-forever-song-from-Frozen, you know the impact of a great movie soundtrack.
Some songs and soundtracks grow lives of their own long after the film has been released – think songs from Saturday Night Fever, Mary Poppins, The Breakfast Club, Grease, A Star is Born and yes, alright – Frozen. Sometimes we only need to hear a few bars of a song for a scene or character to pop into our minds.
The South Burnett Community Orchestra is using this idea for their upcoming charity fundraising concert to entertain their audience with some of their favourite movie scores, and to remind them of their favourite movie heroes and villains.
Their Heroes, Villains & Freddie Mercury Charity Dinner Concert will also feature a three-course dinner, prepared by well-known caterer Judy Crawford, enough reason in itself to go along. The orchestra is a dynamic community based and focused group of musicians whose aim is to develop musical skills and talent and then to provide opportunities for performance.
If you’re looking for a fun, unique, entertaining big band experience like no other, and without leaving the South Burnett, this event ticks all the boxes. (And if you’re wondering what Freddie Mercury has to do with heroes, I don’t know if we can be friends!)
Heroes, Villains & Freddie Mercury Charity Dinner Concert will raise funds for the QCWA Public Rural Crisis Fund, to support those impacted by drought.
Tickets can purchased online from trybooking. Tables of eight are preferred but other numbers can be accommodated. Full bar available, bring some cash for raffles.
Kingaroy Town Hall, Saturday 14 September, doors open 6:00pm.
