"Remembering the Carpenters" with Lisa Budin- what a concert!

This was our Heritage Concert and what a concert it was. The auditorium was at Covid capacity, filled with Heritage Festival regulars, Lisa Budin fans and lovers of The Carpenter's music.

Lisa sang a whole range of songs from the Carpenter's Songbook. Her sultry voice singing "This Masquerade" was bewitching - in fact if Covid masks were over the eyes the audience would have thought they were listening to Karen Carpenter herself. Lisa had the audience clapping, singing and even dancing.

The concert finished with one of the favorites "We've Only Just Begun" and then an encore "On Top Of The World" which had everyone leaving on a high. 


Our June concert will feature The Plektra Mandolin and Guitar Ensemble. The Group will be lead by Dr. Stephen Lalor an internationally renowned virtuoso mandolin soloist and will be joined on this occasion by Guest Violinist Fiona Zeigler from The Sydney Symphony Orchestra. You can find more information of the Programme page of this website.

We can look forward to an interesting and stimulating afternoon's entertainment.

  - Bring your personal water as no afternoon tea will be available

  - Some members will be there to help anyone unfamiliar with using a QR code 

  - Remember an umbrella if the weather is doubtful just in case the socially-distanced queue
