A FAIRYLAND of lights will be the backdrop for Albany City Wind Ensemble’s next big performance, and director Sue Findlay promises it will be a night to remember.
The Under the Stars concert is set for 6.30pm on April 8, at Albany Senior High School’s amphitheatre.
The 45-piece band will be joined by local vocal group About FACE to perform the likes of Lord of the Dance, Light Calvalry Overture, Dance of the Hours and Auld Lang Syne underneath the twinkle of fairy lights Ms Findlay said will be scattered everywhere in the amphitheatre.
About FACE will spice things up with a jaunty sea shanty and high-speed traditional Gaelic mouth music.
The outdoor venue will provide the stage for an intimate concert, with numbers limited to a 300-person audience.
Despite taking a risk with the open-air location, Ms Findlay is adamant the weather will be perfect.
“Autumn has always been my favourite time of year in Albany,” she said.
“The wind drops and the weather can be truly delightful.
“Plus, with cushions for the audience, complimentary sandwiches, hot drinks and chocolates, what’s not to love?”
However, if the skies do open up, the show will be relocated to the Albany Town Hall.
Tickets will cost $28 per person and $15 for children under 17, and can be purchased at Frangipani Floral Studio, on the door or online at albanycitywindensemble.com.au.
