With between forty and fifty members, Illumina Voices has built a fine reputation as a dynamic and popular women’s choir with a focus on choral excellence in a challenging and rewarding learning environment.
As they continue celebrations of their 10th Anniversary, Illumina’s next program reflects on the 100th Anniversary of Armistice, the effects of war and their dreams and hopes for peace to prevail across our lands.
They acknowledge the hope foretold at Christmas and celebrate its coming. Their repertoire draws on classical contemporary choral works, folk songs, excerpts from The Vocal Orchestra of Margaret Dryburgh, iconic Australian choral pieces and some dynamic Christmas repertoire.
The Choir is thrilled to have our previous 2 Musical Directors Rosemary Nairn and Deb Munro join them as Guest Conductors. Guest Artists are Cantorae and Rosemary Nairn on pipe organ. The choir is a not-for-profit organisation who proudly support health projects associated with women, children and families.
Sunday, Novermber 4, 2:30 pm at the Newland Uniting Church. Adults are $25 and concession $20.
Rocking the Island
What do Mental As Anything, The Boogiemen and Peter Cupples have in common with Loaded Billy? 'Nothing' except having been invited to play The Islanders' Tavern. The Tavern thought it's about time to have a hard rocking Sunday afternoon session with none other than Loaded Billy. You know it’s Loaded Billy as soon as you hear that first riff, high powered heavy rock that’s alive and well in the 21st century. Their original songs are an amalgam of great melodies, clever riffs, solid tight arrangements, powerful vocals and a pounding rhythm section.
Loaded Billy will perform songs from their forthcoming album plus favourites by 'Budgie', 'Pink Floyd', Ozzy Osbourne', 'Jimi Hendrix'. Loaded Billy are a powerful live act having developed a hardcore following with new fans coming all the time.
The free show is on Sunday, September 23, 2 pm at The Islanders Tavern, Tolarno Drive Hindmarsh Island.
