The Gunnedah Shire ANZAC Working Group have announced that their first ANZAC Commemorative event planned for 2017 is to be an “ANZAC TRIBUTE CONCERT” to be performed on Pensioners Hill on Monday evening , 24th April., ANZAC Day eve.
“We are very pleased that our award winning Gunnedah Shire Band have agreed to combine with artists from the Gunnedah Conservatorium of Music to provide a tribute concert featuring music and songs from across the hundred years of ANZAC tradition,” stated ANZAC Working Group chairman, Clr Owen Hasler.
“We think that this will be a memorable event with some very emotive songs performed with the backdrop of Gunnedah below the audience as the sun sets over the town, ensuring a spectacular scene,” continued Clr Hasler.
“The Shire Band presented many of their tunes during their trip to the Western Front towns of France in 2013 receiving much acclaim and I am sure they will love to perform some of these tunes before a “home” crowd. The Conservatorium artists wooed the guests at last years ‘ The Music Of War and Peacetime” concerts so we believe we are in for another outstanding show.”
The Rotary Club of Gunnedah West will be selling sausage sandwiches and cool drinks during the performance, and people are also encouraged to bring a picnic hamper if they wish.
Limited seating will be supplied so attendees are encouraged to bring their picnic rugs or camping chairs in order to ensure they have a comfortable seat from which to watch the show.
There is limited parking in the area we are hoping to have a small shuttle bus service in operation -with pick up and drop off points yet to be notified. Extra porta loos will be also be provided to assist those with limited mobility.
“I am sure it will be a night to enjoy and remember” Clr Hasler concluded.
Further information about the event including a wet weather plan will be provided over coming weeks.
