Seniors Time to Sparkle

Seniors time to sparkle

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk is inviting residents to be entertained by some of our most talented seniors at the Lord Mayor’s Seniors Gala Cabaret at City Hall on Sunday, August 18, 1:30pm.

The Lord Mayor said the program’s mentors had handpicked ten of the most-talented senior performers to dazzle audiences at a one-off Gala Cabaret show.

“As part of my vision for Brisbane to be Australia’s most inclusive and accessible city, this program, designed specifically for residents over 60 years, is about thanking our senior citizens for the important contribution they make in our local communities,” Cr Quirk said.

“I would encourage residents, young and old, to come along and support our seniors as they sing, dance and perform in what is sure to be a memorable evening and one of the highlights of Seniors Week.”

Cr Quirk said this year’s Lord Mayor’s Seniors Gala Cabaret was designed to give all participants the opportunity to be mentored, practiced in front of audiences, and developed in a variety of creative areas.

“This program began in June when seniors all over the city attended performance workshops where they were coached by professional mentors,” Cr Quirk said.

“Seniors then took their talents to their local suburbs in July with suburban showcases that gave them their first taste of performing in front of an audience.

“This audience grew last week when residents came out in full force to get a taste of what our seniors can do at a sneak preview of the show in the Queen Street Mall.”

Seven of the program’s mentors will also be performing in the show which kicks off Seniors Week (Saturday 17 to Sunday 25 August).

Seniors participating in the program are aged 60 years or over as of 18 August, 2013.
