“In addition to being a fun event for the audience, the concert offers an opportunity for members to collaborate with other local artists, increase their live performance experience, and demonstrate the results of many months of rehearsals.
“We are excited this year to be presenting our first concert with our recently formed QPAC Youth Choir which consists of 32 talented singers aged 12 to 17.
“Both choirs can’t wait to rock out in what is sure to be a hit concert with rock fans of all ages as they hear their favourite rock tunes sung by over 200 voices,” said Mr Sherlock.
