Granite Belt Choir to perform hits from musical great

A milestone birthday is an event to be celebrated and many of us do something special - dinner with family, a party with friends, a weekend away or perhaps a longer trip to somewhere exotic.

Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber turned 70 earlier this year and members of The Granite Belt Choir thought this was worth noting in the performance events on the Granite Belt during 2018.

Lloyd Webber shot to fame with Jesus Christ Superstar in the UK in the late 1960's, so it could be said that he has provided the soundtrack to the lives of many people worldwide for the past 50 years.

Hearing Marcia Hines perform I don't know how to love Him on Countdown as a pre-teen prompted this girl to race to Green Brothers Music Land to purchase the sheet music and to sing and play it regularly.

The regular release of music for new musical productions by this prolific writer has led to an ongoing "affair" with the extremely talented Mr Lloyd Webber.

Granite Belt Choir members will stage two performances of our selections of his music.

The programme features many of Lloyd Webber's big hits and some of the lesser known ones as well, and includes some pieces sung by the whole choir, some solo and duet pieces, and a couple of orchestral interpretations performed by The Occasional Players.

The inimitable Lee Williams will emcee the concerts.

Performances will be at Stanthorpe Little Theatre on Connor Street.

Ticket prices are $15.00 (general admission) and $10.00 (concession).

Tickets can be purchased at Gracious Giving in Maryland Street or at the door prior to performance unless sold out earlier.

Come along and enjoy a concert of popular music that has been heard in all the best theatres in the world.

You can choose from an evening show on Saturday, September 15 at 7pm or a matinee Sunday, September 16 at 2:30pm.
