Standing ovations, tears of joy, for the return of world class singers.

2pm Sunday 28 March in St Mary’s Church Bairnsdale.

Tickets $40 allocated seating.

Delicious afternoon tea available $5       Pre-concert wine for sale in Church Hall prior.

The original concert for Valentine’s Day Sunday 14 February was sold out but was then cancelled as we went into Covid lockdown. Most patrons who booked for February 14 still wish to come to March 28 so we only have 50 tickets left. The program is outstanding and with Opera by the Lakes not happening in 2021, this is something that is incredibly special for our region and those final 50 tickets will be sold quickly.

Please ring Andrea Ford on 0409771526 to book your tickets.

Please remember social distancing, and BYO mask (& cushion).
